Try running

nm-applet &

in a terminal. this should give you your network applet back... 
If the network fails to connect when you enable networking from the applet,
try running

sudo /etc/init.d/dbus restart

Once you have the nm-applet back, you can save your session in
System-> Preferences-> Sessions, and it should reappear on each GNOME
