Hi Network-Manager wizards,

  I'm running on Ubuntu Dapper and I installed the network-manager package
that's on the Ubuntu Dapper repository. It worked fine the first time, but
three problems arose recently.

   Problem #1: When playing a FPS game, the connection drop dead once in
while. I also see the Gnome widget doing the "refresh" animation at roughly
the same interval. What's going on?

You probably have a signal problem, what type of card is it?   If it
is a Atheros Chipset (Madwifi) there is an issue with the way the
driver reports signal strength and the way every other card does it to
cause Network-Manager to think the signal strength is lower than it
really is.  If this is the case you should file a bug.  If you post
the # here I can confirm it and add more details.

  Problem #2: After I removed the network-manager package, there were no
longer any automatic DHCP request for my network connections. I must do it
manually. How can I fix this?

You would need to enable the device in the Network Tool under
system->administration after you remove network manager.

  Problem #3: Finally, I reinstalled the network-manager package. Now it
does not see my Wireless adapters, or so I guess because the Gnome widget
does not list WAP anymore. What did I do wrong?

Verify that you have the device set as not configured in the Ubuntu
Network Tools.  The Ubuntu package was modified to not manage any
interface configured there.
