 Hi Werner,

 As far as I'm aware they haven't found it's way to OM shipped distros, but
 you can find them in FDOM (and soon Gentoo). There are few interesting
 projects targeting Wifi and some are more successful than the others.

 Personally I'm using NetworkManager and I don't think there is a need to
 reinvent the wheel. Dbus interface and ability to handle most network
 related stuff makes it great tool. With current configuration and VPN
 plugins you can set up network functionality without GUI (like static IP
 for usb-networking), dispatcher scripts allows you to execute custom
 scripts on connection change (like mounting NFS shares when you connect
 Neo to your PC). Well there are tons of other things you can do with it.
 It's great tool and I think we could befit from it.
