I have a slight problem, I uninstalled my Network Manager in Fedora Core 15, why I did this was because it did not show anymore, I thought I will re-install it using my wireless connection but I now can't connect to my wireless connection any longer, is there a way to install Network Manager to that Pc without any Internet Connection by using a RPM file that I can download from my other PC and then install it to my no internet pc, so that it can work again?

Also what steps can I take if this is not possible to get Network Manager installed again?

Boot live usb, chroot couple folders like /proc, /root (forget what else) , make sure you are connected , and do yum install network-manager. – Serg Apr 14 '15 at 17:03

Download whatever RPMs you need from a repository such as RedHat's. Then burn them to CD or put them on a USB key.

,the problem is I do not know which RPM's I need to install this , since the RPM for Network Manager Gnome has some dependencies, but I've managed this morning to get to a lan connection which works and thus installed Network Manager, thx for the help anyway – Roland Oct 14 '11 at 5:46

If you have a a wire to connect to the Internet, you can connect through the command line, using dhclient eth0 on the command line (you need to be root). Once connected just yum install NetworkManager. NetworkManager is case sensistive.
