    you could install wicd as a network manager that will control both your wireless and wired connections, it has a tray icon.
  • Isn't there a way to activate gnome network manger in fluxbox.

    i used gnome when i make errors and when i have trouble running in fluxbox.

    so if i installed wicd it want me to remove network-manager and network-manager-gnome.
    i'm trying to keep my gnome intact.

    Unfortunately in ubuntu to install wicd it requires the gnome network manager to be removed. Have you tried calling network-manager from the command line to see if you can launch it in fluxbox?
  • i found the name. i just never new what to type because network-manger
    came up with no such command.

    nm-applet &
    in my startup file.
