Right click on the Network Manager applet in the top panel and select
Edit Connections.  Select Auto Eth0 or similar if using wired
connection, or the appropriate connection on the Wireless tab
otherwise and click Edit.  Check that Available to All Users is
selected.  If it is not then select it and apply.  Google leads me to
believe that that may fix your problem, or it may not.  I don't think
it does any harm though.
