I haven't changed it.  However, all of a sudden wireless is working in
KDE.  I did nothing.  Must be one of those passing quirks.  I didn't
even "get out of the car" (reboot), though I have been dwelling in both
Gnome and XFCE since I stopped trying with KDE.  Now I'm running KDE
again and wireless is working.

Thanks for all the help and comments...
