i don't use it but :
There is a program called wicd which is a connection manager that is a very good program for seeing and connecting to wireless AP via a GUI. I live on a college campus that is wireless with 802.11n and need a good Gui interface like network manager to be able to connect to the different AP's as I travel around campus. Wicd has worked well for me in Ubuntu before. I was wondering if anyone has ever successfully installed it on BT3 or BT2 and if so, would please give the steps they took to get it to work. I tried installing it, but am stuck in dependency hell. Thank in advance to anyone the might be of assistance .

Dr pepper thank you sooo very much for your post. I will try what you idicated later tonight and post back my results
Ok, I installed Wicd and I am able to see all the wireless acess points here on campus. My only problem now is the fact the campus has an open access point which Bt3 connects to automatically. When I try and select a secured one to connect to, wicd wont connect to it. I think whatever cnnection manager Bt3 uses, is blockign wicd from working correctly. I will keep trying different things. Thanks drpepperOne for getting me on the right path
someone knows how to add Wicd to autostart for BT3?
Yeah, here is how I got Wicd to work in BT3F for a hard drive install. Follow drpepperONE directions to install wicd. After that you need to do the following.someone knows how to add Wicd to autostart for BT3?
add the following code to rc.localCode:bt ~ # chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.local bt ~ # nano /etc/rc.d/rc.local
Now reboot.Code:if [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd ]; then /etc/rc.d/rc.wicd start fi
Thanks, it's work fine, but why placed two icon in autostart? First is without icon and second is property wicd icon? I have installed a wicd 1.4.2 from slackware 12.1 reposytory.
I was assuming that the tray icon needed to be started as boot. I compiled my own wicd package for BT3F from slackbuilds.org instead of downloading it from a repository. Thanks for letting me know. I'll update my previous post.Thanks, it's work fine, but why placed two icon in autostart? First is without icon and second is property wicd icon?
