kernel-2.6.23-0.211.rc8.git2.fc8 does not solve my iwl3945 issue, which
is that nm-applet pulldown menu shows all options related to wireless
are grayed out.
Also have NetworkManager*-0.7.0-0.3.svn2907.fc8 and
Running kernel-2.6.23-0.213.rc8.git2.fc8 seems to work better for me:
nm-applet seems to work (except it still is initially displayed with
the red 'x'), I can select a WPA network and enter hex key generated
by wpa_passphrase, the right 'stuff' gets stored in my keyring, etc.
My Thinkpad X60 also has iwl3945, so I'm not sure what is different
(do your networks broadcast their SSIDs?)
I can alternate between wired and wireless without issue.
One issue: 'Connect to other wireless network' and 'Create new
wireless network' menu items are grayed out. I'm guessing that will
make it hard to connect to networks that don't broadcast SSIDs.
