Description :
NetworkManager is a system network service that manages your network devices
and connections, attempting to keep active network connectivity when available.
It manages ethernet, WiFi, mobile broadband (WWAN), and PPPoE devices, and
provides VPN integration with a variety of different VPN services.

Update Information:

This update ensures that users are authorized to start shared wifi connections, and includes fixes to retry failed connections after a period of time.  It also ensures that 'always ask' 802.1x passwords (like RSA Token codes) are asked for again immediately if they fail, and adds the capability to blacklist certain devices from using a wired or wifi connection.
