Default "95%" SOLVED: How to get mobile broadband, LAN and WIFI working again at the same netbook??!!

Hello Mark, Sinclair and Everybody

Thanks for your latest input, Mark.

The following question has been answered for at least "95%" now:

>>> How to get mobile broadband, LAN and WIFI working again at the same netbook??!!

> You might want to try the gnome networkmanager ....
So far, the attempt with respect to this package has been successful
with both mobile broadband and wired LAN. As soon as I can try some
WIFI connection, I will report also those test results to this forum.

By following this instruction, I did manage to get nm-applet. So, one
question remained earlier today:

The following answer proved to be effective for me:

Network manager did not appear in the list of "known applications".
However, by typing '/usr/bin/nm-applet' into the box, I managed to
integrate networkmanager into Autostart. This became clear tonight
immediately after restarting the laptop.

OK, I am very satisfied now. Respectfully Yours,
