Before you install knetworkmanager, why don't you try from command line terminal:
$ nm-applet &
and it should bring up the icon that you need. Don't know if it is a bug but if one updates/updated during Fedora 13 Release cycle(Testing), this happened there too. In my case, I have to use this, because my laptop does the same thing as is happening to you. Don't know why it happens, but something broke it from starting automagically :(
Hope this helps,
