It's a wireless connection; before re-installing
network-manager-applet, the integrated status menu didn't have anything
to say about networking, so I couldn't check or make sure I was
connected to the wireless.

It seems like this is an issue in packaging somehow, that fedup didn't
know to install network-manager-applet.  Or maybe that fix was not the
way it's supposed to be fixed - I just did that because I had
remembered from previous versions of gnome-shell that the network
controls operated by controlling nm-applet.
