With network it works fine. I made a change to Netwokmanager to be able

Network is not up, NetworkManager is. eth0 comes up with NetwokManager
without any problem, but wlan0 interface is not up after booting. I have
to manually up wlan0 before connecting via NetwokManager.

Dumb question - is wlan0 configured to come up on boot? (On boot box
checked, or "ONBOOT=yes" in /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0?

Generally, if using NetworkManager, you do not want your interfaces
upped on boot.  The current NM only goes to work when a user logs into
an X session.  Then it connects to the wired interface (if available) or
to the WAP in range that it had connected to most recently.  If no
previous connection, it waits for the user to pick one.

Then why can't I get my wlan0 up when I enter X?
