it will usually fail to connect for some reason.
Do you want to control, or connect?
If you want to control you can always use mapping in
/etc/network/interfaces; But I assume you're looking for a GUI-type way.
In that case you may be interested in nm-applet (network-manager-gnome
is the package).
I want to connect, I am more comfortable with the text file doing the setup,
it's just that with several wireless spots it began being a pain, and I don't
have the time to play around with scripts
anyway, I installed network-manager-gnome and found a fix for the error
starting up nm-applet but now I can't connect to the wap2 network at home. It
seems that wpa-assistant starts up and there is an attempt to modprobe wifi0
and then the connection fails. It seems from wpa-gui that the connection is
made but then dropped for some reason

programs, by the same token they deserve to be punished if they
restrict the use of these programs.
