This question is for those who've destroyed networkmanager by doing something stupid like thinking that WICD could be installed at the same time as gnome network manager and have no conflicts between the 2 programs.
Moral of the story: If it Aint broke don't fix it!
Anyways I didn't pay attention to that adage and decided to install WICD through synaptic package manager to play with. WICD worked while it was installed but when I uninstalled it Fouled up gnome network manager and tried to fix it with the rfkill program, but it didn't do any good. Here's the unfavorable script results that probably can't give much of a clue what's wrong:
