I opened Package Manager and went to Broken dependencies. I see package libnl-3-200 as the package. Should I remove this first?

No

Create a folder on the desktop called:-

network-manager

Put these 2 files in it
http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/n/network-manager/network-manager_0.9.8.8-0ubuntu7.3_amd64.deb
and
http://cz.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/n/network-manager-applet/network-manager-gnome_0.9.8.8-0ubuntu4.5_amd64.deb

then open a terminal and run:
Code: [Select]
cd ~/Desktop/network-manager
then post the output from:
Code: [Select]
sudo dpkg -i *.deb

Is network-manager working now ?

If not, does it load if you run:
Code: [Select]
nm-applet

No, it is not running. Does the dpkg  command install it?

running nm-applet, I get "nm-applet-Message: usign fallback from indicator to GtkStatusIcon" and it just hangs. I have to ctrl+c to stop it.

I also don't see network manager as an applet to choose from in the Add/Remove Panel Items

When you run:

it may appear to hang, but leave the terminal open and look down by the clock .. is there a network manager icon down there ?
