I am new to Linux and Fedora and installed Fedora 21 Server on VMWare fusion to learn. After the installation is done and I install the Fedora Workstation GUI I checked my network connections that the only thing available is the Proxy Server(?). I can't seem to add a wired connection and gain internet access no matter what i try. Before the installation starts I verified that it recognizes a wired connection, however when completed, I have no internet access or network information.

Well, if you think NetworkManager is failing (did you try systemctl status NetworkManager.service to see its status and latest log messages?) and the systemctl status output is insufficient for your diagnostic needs, try sudo journalctl _SYSTEMD_UNIT=NetworkManager.service - that should give you a nice log of NetworkManager's behavior. See anything interesting?
