I have a co-worker with an IPW3945 in his ThinkPad and a couple of other 
friends who have the IPW3945 in their notbooks.  They have all reported that 
they can not use NetworkManager with it.  Apparently, it's a well known 
problem that NetworkManager doesn't play (at all?) nicely with IPW3945 cards 
using either the older daemon or the newer drivers.

I haven't heard reports yet in testing with F7 on their notebooks, but I know 
at least one of them was doing so.  If there is any new info regarding those 
tests, I'll try to post it here.
