This is the wpa_cli status, when I am connected via wpa_supplicant:

key_mgmt=WPA2/IEEE 802.1X /EAP
Supplicant PAE state=AUTHENTICATED
selectedMethod=17 (EAP-LEAP)

When using the nm_applet GUI (0.6.5), I have the impression that I
cannot select a similar configuration.
Can I configure NetworkManager manually?
