Unfortunately this does not seem to work for me.


I entered the configuration as Config 1, entered the essid as well as 
the hex key as key 1.  Then I went to setup networking and tried to 
activate my wifi pcmcia card (which is fully supported by Linux, no need 
for Windows drivers) but it is a no go.  It will not activate the card.  
It will show the green V for a second and then switch back to a red X.


Also I find kubuntu lacking in control applets (or rather lack of them) 
in general.  Too many things are left for the user to configure by 
directly modifying the configuration files.
