of this i am aware, and if i had a wireless card, i would use it for scans.

i inherited an smc smcwpci-g, which is atheros based, but i am too much
of a linux purist to put ms drivers and wrappers in system to use it.

when funds build, i will get a wireless card that does not need a wrapper
to install it.

for now, i am staying with secure hardwire.

have faith. networkmanager is a 'dirty diaper' and in time, soon i hope, it
will get to where it needs to be. right now, they have too much else to get
straightened out before they get the 'bells' ringing.
