I have just installed kde-misc/networkmanagement and gnome-extra/nm-applet, which provides a nice user inteface for monitoring and configuring network connections, including wireless.

nm-applet does now show up in the KDE Application Laucher Menu. So the only way to start the GUI is to hit "Run Command..." and type Network in the prompt. Then one must identify that the nm-applet is called Network Management, Network status and control utility and start it.

Has anyone found the way to get the nm-applet to start at boot an possibly reside as a widget in the task bar?

Why installing both (nm-applet and networkmanagement)?
nm-applet is usualy the frontend for gnome and networkmanagement for kde.
You want to use both?

Edit: Just seen your other post

One of kde-misc/networkmanagement, kde-base/plasma-apps, kde-base/kdeplasma-addons should contain a networkmanager frontend as taskbar widget, just relogin, unlock widgets, click the taskbar config button on the right, "add widget" and search for "network".
