Do you have network-manager-kde installed? If not, install it and
perhaps also kwirelessmonitor. You should be good to go then. But post
here if it still doesn't work.

This might ask you setup a password for KDE wallet. To save trouble, I
set it to the same as I my login password.

If you are using pulseaudio, make sure you have ESD for "audio device"
in Hardware tab of sound system configuration.

Make all the above changes and relogin and see how it goes.
