Indeed with NetworkManager connecting the Freerunner was sometimes a pain.

So I switched to wicd a month ago, and now it connects flawlessly... I
kept my network config file the same as I used before.

PS. Also wicd now allows me to turn on/off wifi on my laptop when I
want. With NetworkManager, if I did not turn it on at boot time, it
was not recognized afterwards... And I also prefer its wifi
scanning/configuration, though I still do not understand why it does
not always show my AP (as if it was an hidden network).
