[nSLUG] Finding linux products and software

I've found that the only way to connect to MUN's wireless (aside from doing 
wpa_supplicant manually) is to use GNOME's nm-applet and specify a "Key Type" 
(crypto protocol) of TKIP. Auto doesn't work, I have to pick TKIP.

KNetworkManager doesn't give me this option (I guess it always uses auto), so 
I can't associate with the network at all. Thus, if I want to use Network 
Manager, I need to run nm-applet (which, of course, doesn't play nice with 
KWallet, so I have to enter my credentials every time I connect).

Bug reports are here:
