Re: Gnome Network Manager appears disconnected when using Static IP...
Thank you, Roberto, for your answer. Here's my feedback:
1) My user account is indeed part of the "netdev" group:

martin adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape audio dip video plugdev scanner netdev powerdev
Thank you anyway, if any of you has another idea, feel free to post them...
