I have a co-worker with an IPW3945 in his ThinkPad and a couple of other friends who have the IPW3945 in their notbooks. They have all reported that they can not use NetworkManager with it. Apparently, it's a well known problem that NetworkManager doesn't play (at all?) nicely with IPW3945 cards using either the older daemon or the newer drivers. I haven't heard reports yet in testing with F7 on their notebooks, but I know at least one of them was doing so. If there is any new info regarding those tests, I'll try to post it here.
