There's no real settings, but there is a bug in ntrack support [1] in kde-
runtime causing issue with solid network backend.
In short initially we were providing ntrack support, however since 4.8 the 
support seems to be broken solid networkbackend reporting a non working kde.
Our work around was simply to rebuild kde-runtime (kdebase4-runtime package 
name in mageia) without it (issue fixed with 
https://wiki.mageia.org/en/Support/Advisories/MGAA-2012-0093 ).

In mga #6159 however someone mentionned that issue was still present when 
networkmanager was installed & *not* used for managing network ( yeah funny :p 
So i was asking to check that you were not in that case (if so that would be 
the second case & since i did not find the time to test/reproduce ) & if so 
i'll disable the nm support in kde-runtime too.
To check the network solid status you need to use this line :
qdbus org.kde.kded /modules/networkstatus 

The result (when connected) should be 4.
