Here too, it runs fine in KDE. I have used it for a while now with KDE on FC4 
and FC5 with no problems. I have an ipw2100 wireless card. As others in this 
thread have stated, there is in principle no problem running any gnome 
application under KDE (or vise versa).

Note, with FC5 a newer version of NM is used, where the applet is renamed from 
NetworkManagerInfo to nm-applet. Also, the KDE integration of this "gnome" 
applet in KDE is much better. With FC4 the icon was a little screwed up (with 
my transparent background), whereas with FC5 it is fine.

This is the main issue. I am lucky enough to have a well supported card.
