   I no longer use Gnome - but KDE works perfectly in this case - tho
frankly I'm a little surprised as Gnome certainly used to work fine and
they both use the same underlying NetworkManager.

   You could try KDE just to see if that works - if not then its likely
something deeper than the DE applet.
