I have seen where you must deactivate the device first in

restarting with the wireless already on. All kind of combinations
didn't work. I still can't see the applet on the bar.
I restarted the services, and tried to disable the network service too
(despite this is not mentioned in the referenced link above, I read
elsewhere that if you enable the NetworkManager service you may
consider disabling the network service. That was another test I also
made. But still no success...)
I already made sure that my notification area is there, of course.
Can you think on anything else I can try?
Thanks in advance. Cheers,
