Are you using Network Manager, and if so is NM managing your interface?
1. Is there a nm-applet in the upper panel on the left?

I don't understand either point 1 or point 2; I do almost everything via
the command line in xterm. Could you elaborate?

If you have a /var/run/NetworkManager/NetworkManager.pid file, then
NetworkManager is running.  That's probably the most reliable way.

If you're in a GUI, look around in the taskbars and see if there's an
icon that looks like two computers, one in front of the other.  Right
click on it and select "About" from the drop-down menu.

If the About box says "NetworkManager Applet", then NetworkManager is
running.  If it says "Network Monitor" then NetworkManager is NOT
running.  The problem is that the icon for the NetworkManager applet and
the one for Network Monitor are damned near identical.  It's caught me
by surprise before.
