Finally, I have my wireless stuff that works. But it works, only if I run
knetworkmanager. If I stop it, it doesn't work. The led that shows that the
wifi function is running doesn't work, but I don't care.
The pb I have is that knetworkmanager doesn't take care of the IP address I
wrote in the ifcfg-wlan0 file. It takes an IP from my dhcp router, but my
laptop has a fixed ip, It is configurated that way, it is not supposed to
take an IP from my dhcp router.
Another pb, is that I'm disconnected from the network after 8 or 10 minutes.
I have to stop my connection from the icon on my desktop and to connect
again to the wireless network. Something is broken somewhere. I didn't have
such problems before running my old laptop and F7.
The pb I reported about NFS not working was because of that. My system is
configurated with fixed IP, but now, that knetworkmanager still wants not
to take care of what is configurated, and take another ip address.
