I installed openbox using..
apt-get install openbox
rebooted
chose openbox as the manager and logged in
as with openbox, you right click to get into your menu
went to terminal
used nm-applet
got a error saying it was already running
nmcli nm status
nmcli nm wifi on
nmcli con up id '*connection' <-- where connection is the connection I connect to in lxde //ie: BELL12345
-nothing-
ctrl+z/c ends back to the prompt

You didn't need to install openbox, Pmint already uses it as the windows manager. All you needed do was choose "openbox session" when logging in.

Installing openbox over the Pmint set up may have messed up something would be my guess. Pmint is highly tweeked for lightness and faster speed. You may have to reinstall and start over to get it back to the original state. I am only guessing, but after installing openbox again, that would be my best guess.
