knetworkmanager 'Setting '802-1x' is empty, discarding'

I've not been able to connect to my home wireless network from Linux using knetworkmanager, I'll click the option for my network under the 'Connect to other network' menu but nothing will happen. When I started knetworkmanager from the command line it prints the following when I try to connect and then does nothing.

Processing Setting '802-1x'
Setting '802-1x' is empty, discarding
I'm running openSUSE 11 i386 and keep it up to date. Does anyone know how I can correct this problem?

KNetworkManager should show up as an icon in your system tray. You right click on the icon and it should show you available wireless networks in the pop up menu. Is your wireless NIC turned on?

it does show up as an icon in the system tray and I can right click it-but it doesn't show the available networks. Using the same adapter with MadWiFi does though so the problem does seem to be with knetworkmanager.
