If you want to give it a try, you might need to manually load the kded module:
	qdbus org.kde.kded /kded loadModule networkwatcher

While I set both
in the desktop file* for the module I have not investigated yet why it does 
not work right from the time of the installation. On the next start of the 
desktop it at least works :) Except for the case if the demon responds to 
slow to the kioslave during session startup, then it will currently 
report "Malformed url.". Should be fixed soon.
