Hey I've almost got wireless working but no dice.

pacman -S wireless_tools
pacman -S gnome-network-manager
3. Put iwl3945 in /etc/rc.conf
in the modules=() array

Anybody tell me the next step to get up and working? Just about there.
Do I need to do something with Network Manager?
and if it HAS to be a guitized applet I'd suggest WICD over Networkmanager every da of the week and twice on sunday.

Have you installed the firmware?

Yes I have installed the firmware.
The wireless wiki says wireless tools are necessary also
Working on the script(s) for netcfg,
ESSID="mynetwork" (Same as SSID right? I think this is my MAC addr on router)
Seems pretty clear
Then I need to add some kind of option to auto-connect when roaming to cafe's.
All new to me!
Any tips are appreciated.
Using netcfg2 at home- no problem to connect with wpa script. Can someone give me a script or method for outside roaming (with no security)? I tried auto but can't seem to connect outside like at coffeeshop.
networkmanager needs you to be in the network group
sudo gpasswd -a username network
