I don't know but you may have to restart X for this to take effect
(ctrl+alt+backspace)

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

Leo,

Are you talking about the icon with two computers sitting in the panel down by the date & time in the default installation? That is the nm-applet (Network Manager) for your system. If that is the Wired Network Connection icon, I am unsure if you want to do to much fiddling with that. It might lead to some future problems. I could be wrong, but I would be wary of wholesale deletion at this point.

What you are describing ( mintMenu > Preferences > mintDesktop ... Desktop Items ... Network ) is not the same as the nm-applet in the panel. They are different. Please make sure of what you need before pressing the delete key. Maybe I am just over-cautious.

Oops
If you remove the nm-applet > good bye network :roll:
I did not consider this which I should have - thanks rivenought
(You could add wicd or so but that's another story)
