You could try the Gnome version of the network applet by installing the
package network-manager-gnome and uninstall the packages network-
manager-kde and plasma-widget-networkmanagement (whichever is
installed). Then run the command

For me konqueror (used as file manager) freezes if there is a window
with a NFS share open while there is heavy traffic on the (wireless)
link to that share. Maybe it is a similar reason for you?

You can run any KDE application from other desktop managers. As you
don't like Gnome (I don't like it either), I would suggest you try xfce,
just install the package xubuntu-desktop. I played with it some time ago
and it was quite nice but finally I stayed with KDE.
