Can't connect to wireless or wired network after removing NetworkManager

Hi, I recently reinstalled F9 on my laptop, and since using Wicd was the only way I could be
able to connect to a wireless network, I figured I didn't need NetworkManager so I uninstalled it. I was able to use the wireless network for a while until I rebooted my laptop at which point I couldn't be able to connect to a wireless or even a wired network. I can't even run Wicd as
I click on its icon but no window appears. Even if I try to run the Wicd scripts from the command line, I still can't get it to run. Any help guys?

Check that you have and enabled "network" service.

Code:
$ su -
# /sbin/chkconfig network on
# /sbin/service network start

/etc/sysconfig/networking/devices/ifcfg-eth0:
NM_CONTROLLED=yes => change to "no"

Similarly, for your other devices e.g. ifcfg-wlan0.

Thanks for the input, I had already disabled NetworkManager before uninstalling it.

Well, looks like everything is not fine. The first time I did that, I was able to connect fine,
but after rebooting my laptop the 'network service start' command fails. I can be able to
connect with a wired connection but my wireless fails. I reinstalled wicd, and strangely
enough it shows the available wireless networks but I can't connect. The results of
pinging is that the 'Network is unreachable'. Any suggestions?
