I remember in the past that nmcli was called when starting network to check on 
something.  the result was that NetworkManager had to be running since systemd 
opens the socket so without a running NetworkManager you got no network as 
nmcli would hang waiting for a response.  this was back when F14 was in 
development so it could have been resolved.  ive not tried lately.
