Network Issues


I have a laptop with Ubuntu 9.04 on it. I wanted to try out fluxbox, so I did a apt-get install fluxbox. When I went into fluxbox, I was having trouble getting connected to my network wirelessly.

I saw a post online that said to install wicd. So I did a apt-get install wicd. This removed the Gnome network manager (nm-applet) which I didn't realize that it would do. I removed wicd when I saw this is what happened, and now I can't connect to a wired or wireless network.

I tried connecting to my wired network, and I ran

Code:
sudo ifconfig eth0 192.168.1.115
but I still can't access the internet, or other things on the network. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Sorry I posted too soon, because I just figured out what to do, I ran

Code:
sudo dhclient
sudo apt-get install network-manager-gnome
That did the trick. Maybe this is for a different forum, but does anyone know how I can get connected to my wireless network from within fluxbox?

I just ended up using the gnome network manager in fluxbox, I added the following to my ~/.flusbox/startup file:

Code:
nm-applet --sm-disable &
