Thanks very much, I'll try that.

Though I am reasonably sure -
having followed your suggestion to use nm-tools -
that the occasional problem with my Orinoco Gold PCMCIA card
is something to do with the orinoco_cs driver rather than NM.
Still, it will help to find as soon as possible
whether or not a WiFi connection is going to be set up.
