So you have to remove it (NetworkManager and nm-applet) from startup and reboot. What distribution do you use (version, kernel)? It certainly would be nice to know your hardware specs, too.
I didnt reboot but I did uninstall the NetworkManager and removed the applet.

Thanks once more for your help though.
