I am using the network service on this machine, and I have "NM_CONTROLLED=no" in the config file. I turned off NM in run level 5, and turned on network. But I have heard that NM can now be configured to bring up an interface at boot - if so, change things so that NM runs on run level 3 as well, and turn off network. Dumb question - does it work if you bring up the interface manually in run level 3? (ifup wlan0 or ifup eth0) If so, you could add "USERCTL=yes" to let a normal user bring it up and down.
