@Roy Lee - I share your sentiments, NetworkManager adds 3 seconds to pings (and other packets I assume) every couple of minutes; WICD doesn't exhibit this behaviour. It is very noticeable when browsing etc., and happens on the ath5k chip I use on another laptop too. Why not let the user decide when to scan?

On another note, the backports modules does seem to have fixed the poor wireless performance for me.
