I've just checked yumex and I can't find either kwifimanager or knetworkmanager.
ISTR that the last 'k' network manager I used was a KDE3 one. It worked, sort

On my F11 netbook I use the network management widget. It seems absolutely
fine now - the frequent line-drops of the past have almost totally disappeared.
It's my other laptop with Mandriva that has wicd. It comes highly
