In my case I wanted to undo the pppoeconf settings and had the same problem that my network wasn't managed anymore.

Here is a solution:

1) change to root user
sudo -s
2) change the nm-system-settings.conf-file
gedit /etc/NetworkManager/nm-system-settings.conf
3) And then write under [ifupdown]:
This should solve your problem


applet, dsl, network manager, panel, pppoeconf, sudo, working
