I could never get KWiFiManager to do much of anything so I don't mess with
it anymore.

It sounds like you're running TDE 13.2.  In that case, you have to install
wicd, and make sure you uninstall network-manager, or it'll run in the
background even though you have no applet to control it, and wicd won't be
able to change networks.  I don't like wicd as well as network-manager, but
it works fine once I figured out network-manager was messing it up.

TDE 14 has the network-manager-tde applet to control network-manager.
network-manager-gnome will also show up in the TDE panel, sometimes as a
little dot and sometimes displayed correctly.  To fix that, edit the file
/etc/xdg/autostart/nm-applet.desktop .  Change the line that says:

to: NotShowIn=KDE;TDE;

Most of my machines are now on Slavek's R14 preliminary stable, and I really
 like having network-manager back.
