    Hi
    Normally you should ask this question (any future ones at least) in the
    Novell SLED forums (hhtp://forums.novell.com)

    Did you try logging out and back in again? Did you change any network
    settings in YaST eg change from Network Manager to Traditional?

    Else in the Control Center startup applications should have a item
    called network manager daemon (from memory). Has this been disabled?

    For Gnome goto Menu/Computer icon on the Panel --> Control Centre --> System --> Network Connections. You can open NM there or you can use your mouse to Drag it to the Panel where it will reinsert itself onto the Panel.

    That will be with Gnome desktop. Goto the Menu --> Control Centre --> System --> Network Connections. Drag the Network Connections onto the Panel with your mouse.
