I am not trying to make this a flamewar so don't take this as such,
but he did answer your question, NM supports cards that properly
support the latest WEXT standard for example the IPW cards.
My previous email contains another link that lists specific hardware
support that you may find usefull.
Regarding KNetworkManager, there was a post here by the author of that
applet and I think he is hosting it on the KDE SVN repository. If you
search the list archives for the past 2 weeks you should see it and
that can help you find it. I think if you install your standard
distro's NetworkManager package and then the KNetworkManager applet
you should be good to go but I run Gnome so I have never tried it. If
it works for you please let the list know.
