WICD and KNetworkManager

With a mixed home network - wired and wireless, Linux and Vista, I have had
no end of issues. WICD does seem to work better especially after
uninstalling other network managers.  When I discovered that I could solve
most of the issues with a better router, I upgraded my WRT54G by flashing
with OpenWrt <http://openwrt.org/>. It was not only easy to accomplish but
solved a major issue of needing to reboot the router up to once per day
depending on how many connections are in memory.
