Hi, I've only been using Network Manager for a month or two now
(recently installed Debian on an iBook) and it never works all by itself
the first time it tries to connect, for some reason, it will only work
after I manually run the two commands:

sudo ifconfig eth2 up
sudo iwconfig eth2 channel 11

or whatever the appropriate channel I see in "iwlist" is where I am
connecting... is there any way to automate this? As someone more
familiar with shell scripting than C, I would think it would be as
simple as grep'ing the output of iwlist for the channel number and
feeding it to the script above (with the appropriate eth# interface as
well) I'm just getting tired of running these two commands every time I
connect. Is there anything you can do?
