Wicd

Wicd works much better than NetworkManager on the HP Elitebook 2740p. In particular, I am able to use the wireless connection with Wicd, but could not get wireless to work with NetworkManager.

Annoyingly, Wicd requests root access with every single KDE boot. It is possible, however, to start Wicd as a service at runlevels 3 and 5 (YaST -- System - System Services/Runlevel).
