If you have the Fedora 11 DVD , you can try this,

As root use the commands:

#cp -pr /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-dvd.repo
#gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-dvd.repo &

Now paste and save the following:

[fedora-dvd]
name=Fedora-dvd $releasever - $basearch
failovermethod=priority
baseurl=file:///media/Fedora%2011%20i386%20DVD/
enabled=1
metadata_expire=7d
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=file:///etc/pki/rpm-gpg/RPM-GPG-KEY-fedora-$basearch

#yum clean all
#yum --disablerepo=\* --enablerepo=fedora-dvd install NetworkManager-gnome

Make sure you have mounted your Fedora DVD before using the commands.

There is a easier way:

#rpm -i /media/Fedora \11 \i386 \DVD/Packages/NetworkManager-gnome-0.7.1-4.git20090414.fc11.i586.rpm

File names may differ a bit.
See if they work for you.

Regards.

Try doing "ps -A | grep "nm-applet"" in a terminal to see if it's running in GNOME.
Thanks for refreshing my memory.
