I noticed the "network manager applet" in the sys tray is showing that I'm NOT connected, yet here I am happily perusing the interwebz. It always showed the connection was active previously. I've tried doing ..
sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
.. that kills my connection until I restart. Even if I add a "connection" to the network manager I get the same thing ?? Weird. I made no hardware changes to my Statler install, I've reset my router and physical RJ45 connections.
The only thing I DID do was install Fedora 12 for server config testing and made some basic network changes in Fedora, but that was on a separate HD thats not connected.
It just seems too coincidental to have the applet not work after reconnecting my Statler HD.

I think this is an issue which will need addressing. I will look into providing a fix for the next release.
Meanwhile, you could try to fix this by editing '/etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf' and changing "managed=false" to "managed=true".
Hope this helps.
Is this on a wired or wireless connection? Could you provide some hardware details?
Many problems are related to hardware drivers/firmware as opposed to the network connection guis (network-manager/wicd).
Maybe we can help.
Strangely, starting Sound Juicer killed nm for me and disconnected my mobile broadband Huawei e220 Mobile broadband dongle. I never really got to the bottom of it so don't have a solution.
Anyway, life's just too short. Got rid and installed Asunder. All working tickety boo now.
That did it !! thnx a bunch !!
Okay, I've had the same problem as OP since installing Statler. I figured it was just cause I don't know much about linux, but then I reinstalled Statler fresh yesterday, and I'm still getting "No connection" or whatever. I tried changing the config file manually to "managed=true", but it didn't seem to do anything. I had previously just gotten rid of/hidden the applet, but it would be nice to have it working.
I'm running the 64-bit version of Statler, using built-in wired ethernet port on an ASUS M4A79T Deluxe motherboard.
