Seems to me that network manager is far from ready for use, it's causing too much trouble to too many people.

If you use your system like most Windows users do, then it's probably okay.

address. Anyone can help me out.

I've had this problem too for one of my servers that runs nessus on Fedora8. I solved it by stopping the NetworkManager service and starting the "network" service.

# chkconfig NetworkManager off
# chkconfig network on
# service NetworkManager stop
# service network start

I don't remember doing this, but it does work very nicely on my desktop development machine:
[summer potoroo ~]$ chkconfig  --list | grep -i network
NetworkManager  0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
NetworkManagerDispatcher 0:off 1:off 2:off 3:off 4:off 5:off 6:off
network         0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:on    5:on    6:off
[summer potoroo ~]$
