    I think even if someone is using kde, especially kde4, one should use nm-applet instead of knetworkmanager. When I was in kde 3.5, I was using knewtorkmanager and it was working fine. But I should say networkmanager and nm-applet 0.7 have improvised a lot and are a completely different story than 0.6*. In my opinion, you can create gazillion profiles with nm-applet and select one which you want at run time.

    [Aside, I should make a general note that over the time, gnome and kde are much more harmonic. (Little while back, I was using kde with lots of gnome/gtk apps like eog, evince, firefox, gnome-mplayer and gecko-mediaplayer, cheese, empathy..., so I naturally shifted to gnome. But I still use kde apps like kate, kpowersave, kile, k3b, smplayer, vlc and what not.) While they have merged some gap, I hope that sometime in future, it should be completely desktop agnostic and one shouldn't be able to say at first glance that its a gtk/qt app.]

    Also, I think multiple network cards are supported parallely. On my laptop, both the wireless and ethernet simultaneously get ip addresses (woneder if both can be used simultaneously, but I am sure ethernet is given preference over wireless).

    @ KernelOfTruth : Your univ is very restrictive I must say . We have a unsecure connection and just asked a authentication when using browser for the first time. (May be it stores macaddr or some hardware identification and from then on, its not required to logon from any os.) Meanwhile, I am itching to use the newly installed 80211n routers in our dept building .

      I want knetworkmanager with KDE 3.5 - I don't use KDE 4.

        @hdas:

        I just found out that I can logon, too, via an unsecured connection

        since I'm a little paranoid I'm not feeling good when checking my emails, etc. via that non-encrypted connection

        I think I'm not the only one having that problem

        guest students from abroad probably are facing the same problem: eduroam

        google: eduroam networkmanager 0.7

          I don't think NM itself does mobile broadband.

          At least when I went to file a bug about it, they said "not our problem, this is a Ubuntu-specific feature".

            I believe it given the 'fact' that you use hardened gentoo . (Btw, I am hirakendu in gentoo forums .)

              Would you still mind just trying out nm-applet 0.7 in kde 3.5? (I am curious myself to do it, though I might have to compile a ton on packages to get nm 0.7 in my abandoned old gentoo system having kde 3.5 .)
