I'm still having trouble getting a working wireless applet.  I can't find
nm-applet, and I haven't had any luck installing network-manager from
Squeeze.  Can you give me a little help on how to make either of these
suggestions work?

I'd use wicd, but it doesn't seem to want to work for me.  When I tell it to
connect to a different network, it tries to connect, then gives up and
reconnects to the first network.  I've had other problems with it as well,
like not being able to connect to certain routers.

This is a serious problem because most users just need a simple, working
wireless connection, and don't know what to do when it doesn't work.  If I
can't find a solution, I'll have to put most on XFCE until R14 comes out.
