AFAIK, knetworkmanager is not the default even in the KDE spin of F12. Don't 
know why, but guess it is not stable enough yet. I suggest you use nm-applet 
instead.

The NetworkManager service (the daemon) must be running in order for 
knetworkmanager or nm-applet to work properly.

In system-config-network the "Controlled by NetworkManager" checkbox should be 
selected for every device (eth0, wireless, whatever you have/want) that should 
be managed by NM.

If you want all of your network devices to be controlled by NM, you should 
make sure that the "network" service is not running:

service network stop
chkconfig network off

If you have checked and configured all of the above and it still doesn't work, 
then you should start nm-applet from the terminal (as an ordinary user), try 
to connect and watch for any error messages. Also look at /var/log/messages 
for NetworkManager errors and information.

HTH, :-)
