I'm having a problem. Starting off with Gnome, I was easily able to connect to the wireless network and browse/ping/etc no problem. It's been a while since I working in Linux and I've always preferred lightweight IDE's like fluxbox and Enlightenment. I've installed both, but have been struggling to get wireless networking working in either of them. This isn't a problem with the IDE's so much as it is a problem with the fact that NetworkManager doesn't work with either of them.
I've installed WICD on my laptop and in the configuration of system-config-network, I've made sure that the option "Controlled by NetworkManager" is unticked. As soon as I do this and try to use a program like WCID to work with wlan0, it just breaks.
If I try do a ifup wlan0, I get the error message "Error for wireless request set mode 8b06".
