7 i got good results with wicd in the past. i got it to work fine on a
8 gentoo laptop for exactly what you need, if understood your mail correctly.
10 i don't have a laptop anymore, and on my netbook i have xubuntu. they use
11 network-manager as a default. wicd is lighter and works fine, but
12 network-manager has the advantage of working with mobile broadband, while
13 wicd doesn't. but i never could make network-manager work on gentoo...
