i wanna use such handy program like networkmanager or wicd.
my wlan works pretty well, when i configure it in the cli or in the rc.conf file.
but when i use knetworkmanager or wicd i have a strange problem.
both programs find the access points, but when i wanna connect
to mine the whole system freezes. i am using wep encryption, but
i have also tried without any.
i am using the orinoco_usb module from svn  with the associated
firmware. i followed the steps from this wiki . on this side
there is a warning for using such graphical program, but i think
there should be a possibility to use it.
also i hadn't any success with the ndiswrapper.
my wlan card is from a compaq evo n610c laptop and is
called w200 multiport.
thanks for all tipps!
