Hmm. It's working better, but not all better now.
I do have an ip now and I can browse the web.
But I still don't have the NM applet.

They reinstalled. The system wanted a reboot. Still no NM applet after the
reboot. I do have an ip and a working wireless connection at the moment.

Hmm. I don't understand how the wireless network is working, when
iwconfig says it's not associated with an access point. But the
wireless network must be working since I have connectivity without a
cable plugged into the wired port.
