As root issue the command
service NetworkManager start

Now to make it start up automatically after a reboot then use this command to set that.
chkconfig --level 345 NetworkManager on

Is it installed?

Missed your sig saying you have Suse so not sure how to check for that. I am mostly a Redhat user. Also the chkconfig tool is mostly on redhat as well. Not sure if present on Suse.

I am not a Suse user and don't use NetworkManager so I have no more ideas. Not much more help.

Good luck

I mean, even if you dont use Suse, what is the name of your connection manager? For your wireless device?

NetworkManager is for Gnome. KInternet is for KDE.

Glad you got it all figured out then. I'll continue to use KInternet with KDE and NetworkManager with Gnome though, since I have both working perfectly that way.
