I think I've made a little progress.
If the main LED on the PCMCIA card is not on,
I will get nowhere until I physically eject the card,
and re-insert it.
Then, if the light goes on, and I do nothing,
NetworkManager is quite likely to connect me
after a delay of  a minute or so.

I find the output of "sudo iwlist eth0 scan"
mirrors the results shown by the knetworkmanager icon in the panel.
If this shows me one or two networks then so does iwlist.

At the moment, for example, I see two networks
and iwlist gives me:
[tim martha ~]$ sudo iwlist eth0 scan
eth0      Scan completed :
          Cell 01 - Address: 00:16:B6:DA:56:B4
                    Frequency:2.457 GHz (Channel 10)
                    Signal level:-59 dBm  Noise level:-98 dBm
                    Encryption key:off
          Cell 02 - Address: 02:02:2D:4A:52:80
                    Frequency:2.457 GHz (Channel 10)
                    Signal level:-57 dBm  Noise level:-98 dBm
                    Encryption key:on

I think I've increased the times NM works OK
from 30% to 85%.
