I don't recall having to do anything specific to get the debug thingy working, 
though I could be wrong.  One thing that does puzzle me a bit - you refer to 
kwifimanager - I thought the package was knetworkmanager.  Are we definitely 
talking about the same thing?

Other than that, I can only suggest that you install wicd.  On this laptop 
wifi was dodgy - I kept losing the connection.  Since I installed wicd all has 
been well.  I've seen a lot of other reports of it solving problems, too.

New to KDE4? - get help from http://userbase.kde.org
Just found a cool new feature?  Add it to UserBase
