Re: [kde] Wireless Internet



Hi, Steve

I had some problems getting my my 3G internet working in KDE which worked
fine and almost automatically in GNOME. This is what I did to solve my
problem - not sure if this will work for you. In GNOME (where everything
was set up and working) I opened network manager and took screenshots of all
the configuration windows - it seems that the GNOME networkmanager does more
autoconfiguration than knetworkmanager. I then logged into KDE and used the
screenshots to configure knetworkmanager. I know our situations differ, but
I think it's worth a try. Good luck, I hope you solve this.

I am running Jaunty Jackalope on a Toshiba Laptop. In Gnome, I have
no problem hooking up to my wireless network. In KDE, I can't hook up
no matter what I try. Wired works just fine, but the inconvenience is
causing me to not use KDE.

Can anyone suggest a solution to this? I would like to use wireless,
and I would like it to work as seamlessly as in Gnome.
