Comment 29 for bug 82927

I'm having the same type of problem with NM. When I click on the icon, it correctly displays a list of available wireless networks, but when I select one of them, it attempts to connect but fails.

If, while it is attempting to connect, I pop open a terminal and run dhclient (which will connect just fine), once the n-m connection attempt times out, it will disable my now functioning network and I have to run dhclient again.

We really need a decent network management interface. NM is a couple of bugs away from being great, but unfortunately, those bugs are complete showstoppers. (Now if my stupid Broadcom 4318 would work out of the box, or even with the package install of ndiswrapper, instead of me having to build it from source...)
