ok, so here's the problem, as seen in my clever subject: the drivers for my laptop wireless, which are proprietary, work just fine in gnome, but for some reason the drivers dont seem to be being picked up in KDE. admittedly, i cant get a launcher, or wireless icon/indicator in kde, either. KDE 4 is a new demon to me, and i havent figured it all out yet.
any help is help, so suggest anything, in plain english because im no expert, and i admit that.
As was written, install KDE networkmanager. Next you may need to sudo nm-applet, then sudo nm-applet-conf. Next boot it should be in taskbar without any command line steps.
Do not expect KDE desktop to run you cellular modem like it did before KDE was improved.
Gnome still does WIFI & 3G modems well, not KDE.
