Same situation on openSUSE 11.1, on same wireless environment [however, I have
removed my Linksys router - WRT54GS to use only a Freebox v5, a internet
provider network gateway, configured both as a router and wireless acces
point].

- My centrino LAN 2100 3B (ipw2100) does not work out of box. It needs
"wireless" configuration file to tell wpa_supplicant with
WIRELESS_AP_SCANMODE=2 and works only with "ifup" / kinternet managers, not
with NetworkManager.

- My Linksys WPS54GS (ssb / b43) works only with NetworkManager, not with ifup
/ kinternet managers.

NetworkManager does not automatically connect, because it tries eth0 (ipw2100)
first, and fails. It seems to process my wlan0 (b32) connection, but also
fails: I have to relaunch manually on wlan0 to get connected.

I got also many messages reported by kernel, like :

Jan 4 09:48:34 linux-hpkv kernel: b43-phy0 ERROR: PHY transmission error

But the wireless connection with b43 is more stable using videolan vlc (no
connectivity loss after fiew seconds). Streaming Stops after 10/20 minutes, and
tries to restart but vlc is out of sync. Sometimes streaming stutters. I have
to manually reconnect to the network after 20 minutes.
