Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

Clicking on the wireless signal strength applet pops up a window with
available networks. If you click on "Connect to other wireless network"
the signal strength applet goes away, and the connection is lost. Since
the applet is gone, you can't click on it to bring the popup back to
reselect a wireless network that was working. Attempt to use the
graphical network configuration screens are not successful.  To
reconnect to the network manually you need to enter a security scheme
password, unsecured network is not an option, although it works when the
connection is made automatically. Had to reboot to get back to a
configuration to reconnect. Wireless device is an Airlink 101 USB stick.
Terminal window ifconfig shows eth2 present when usb stick is inserted,
but eth2 is not an option on the network screen menus to get it back.
