Thats the old NetworkTray from 7.x, not sure how you ended up with that. 
The new one is just "pc-nettray". Check your .kde/Autostart dir, you may 
have some old startup .desktop files in there.

Also, try to configure the network via the network manager gui and see 
if that works to get you line. It sets up the "lagg" interface by 
default now, so you won't see an IP on em0, but it'll be on lagg0 
instead, and it should still work. (This provides some failover services)
