The good news is that whatever has been upgraded should not need to be redone.
How are you connecting to the internet? Is it a wired network connection to a modem/router?
This should be easy to configure using at the command line using 'netconfig'.
Glad to know my problem has a pedigree, and that the poison doesn't sound too bad!
Connection? Unfortunately (I use the word in many ways) it is _wireless_ with optus!
So, this is a known problem with -current, huh?
Here was I thinking it was just my undirected panicked monkey hands that bruised my already-battered GUI and made the connection icon disappear!
As it is, nothing I do within the gui will restart NetworkManager!
I have just found a lead on resetting xfce4 to its original configuration, but from you say here, that would not do me any good as the problem is with -current install changing NWorkMger, right?
You're a legend, I'll do the search!
Catch you later tonight, hopefully with a KDE-emblazoned gui!!!!!
Edit: Done! (and believe me, I'm getting better at finding things out for myself, so hereafter won't be instantly hitting the board, but googling first)

Working on it now!
