Disabling the "Radio" in Sugar's Control panel not only disables an XO's internal 802.11 radio, but currently also disables a user's ability to use any other networking adapter automatically in Sugar.
I'm told this was done to workaround some other networking issues for the 10.1.3 release, and that Sugar/GNOME/NetworkManager's ability to coordinate with each other is not the best.
Users should either leave the "Radio" on, or if power is a concern, other adapters (such as USB ethernet devices, etc.) can be manually configured.
Seen in 10.1.3 os359. To be documented for 10.1.3, fixed in a future release.
