If I plug in a wire, the wired entry turns un-greyed and NM connects.
But the wireless options are never un-greyed.  I even rmmodded and
modprobed iwl3945.  The wireless options disappear completely, but
eventually come back greyed out.  There is no indication that a network
has been seen, but that's not surprising as the netowrk's SSID is hidden
and NM isn't aware of it yet.

Also noticed that if I stop NM and try to connect with ifup, I have to
rmmod and modprobe iwl3945 before I can get it to work.
