Lost the battery monitor and network manager on my gnome panel, Ubuntu Lucid

I clicked on the wrong thing and it all went away, and no amount of poking around in configuration tools will make either re-appear and I have no control over wireless config short of hammer and tongs with iwconfig and iwlist. any one have any suggestions as to where to poke this thing? I have re-installed the net manager and no dice....

The battery monitor icon is controlled via System >> Preferences >> Power Management then the General tab.

To get your Network Manager applet back, try this:
- right-click next to the time
- select "add to panel"
- select "application launcher .. copy a launcher from the applications menu"
- click the "forward" button
- locate Network Connections under Preferences and select it
- click add

got it!

Actually what worked was to follow the same path you were going down but to add the notification area, at which point I regained the battery monitor and the network manager, which was actually much more of an issue.

Thanks for the help
