iwlist scanningand get a list of ESSID's. I can't, however, use the network manager to connect to (or even see for that matter) my wireless network. As I said before,
iwlist scanningworks and finds it and connects to it if I tell it to. I am working on how to get this to work properly.
This is one thing that I think GNOME (Network Manager) does very well. All I have to do is click on the adapter in the tray, find my network, click it, and, if need be, put in my WEP key. So far, I have been less than impressed with the network side of KDE.
On the plus side, I have configured Kontact to use my Gmail account through IMAP. I really like it (a lot more than Evolution, but that isn't saying much). It isn't trying to be a clone of Outlook. I also like the "plasmoids", or widgets as I call them.
So far, I have mixed feelings about my first day of KDE use. More to come.
