RE: FC3 Wireless "Profiles"


I wasn't sure if this had been resolved or not.  I just used the Systems Settings -> Network Configurations (KDE) to set up my wireless seetings.  Just click on New to add new profiles and fill the the appropriate info.  I have my home and work wireless networs set up in two diffrent entries.

Do you realise that there is a Profile facility in
KDE=>System Settings=>Network 
which is intended for exactly your purpose ?

Having said that, I've never been able to get it working properly.

I've tried NetworkManager, and been reasonably successful.
However, it hasn't done as much as I hoped.
I think success depends to some extent
on the card and driver you are using.
