Also, thought I'd mention the fact that I've had VERY sporadic results
with the Ubuntu wireless settings manager. If you're trying to set up
multiple profiles, may as well give up - configure it, then restart
everything (I've sometimes had to reboot to get things working after
wireless changes). Probably shouldn't have to do all that with Linux,
but something doesn't initialize properly.
