There isn't nearly enough information here to suggest a solution. Please read this, then provide more detail, such as what distro/version you are using, whether the network manager was working previously, what is the make/model of the computer, and what, if any, changes were made before the problem occurred.

Please also remember that this forum is peopled by volunteers. After you provide some more information about the problem, it may take a while before someone who is capable of helping reads and responds to your post.
