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@spc1:~$ groups
martin adm dialout fax cdrom floppy tape audio dip video plugdev scanner netdev powerdev

2) I use a static IP for this eth0...

Thank you anyway, if any of you has another idea, feel free to post them...

nm-applet needs 2 conditions to work:
1) The user have to be into "netdev" group
2) Cards managed by nm must have no configuration or dhcp configuration

Sorry, my english isn't good.
