Hm, did you confuse me with someone else? I didn't say I use wicd, just that I see it recommended when people have issues with network-manager. The latter indeed manages the wireless broadband (well... not that broad) just fine. Connection quality seems to be defined by the network (I don't have the best one here) and the modem (sometimes seems to die on me).
One annoying thing with network-manager is that I have to restart it to show the tray icon along with my 3G modem (might be that old bug about network manager being confused by a static eth0 config).

Alrighty then,
