Hi Fabian ;-)
The log says NOTHING... of course ,I tried to find somethin in it but
NOTHING is told avbout this error...
But the network works without problem, only an error sign is shown on
the nm-applet icon and I cannot see network traffic though it...
It's like if nm-applet could not see my wlan0, if i use ipw3945 and then
have my wireless interface on eth1, I have no problem, but with iwl3945
and nm-applet, it doesn't seem to work totally...
