Icon is missing because I downloaded the ubuntu meerkat beta, which developped new networking applet.

Maybe reinstall or install indicator-network
http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?suite=default&section=all&arch=any&searchon=names&keywords=indicator-network

In case add to panel 'notification area', indicator-applet'.

Are you really using indicator-network and connman? Or are you using network-manager and network-manager-gnome, which is the default in Ubuntu 10.10 as well?

You can check with this command if you have network-manager or connman installed:

COLUMNS=200 dpkg -l '*network-manager*' connman indicator-network

Please copy the output here. The lines beginning with 'ii' are installed on your device.

Well no,

I had everything installed, but as I presume the network applet was at developped for meerkat.
When I made the update the network icon was gone because canonical made new applet. I had to install network-indicator or simillar which is a new network icon for meerkat.

Thanks, this question has been answered.
