Wicd in KDE & Flux. Never really had any probs with it, so why switch? Only wireless connection I use is on my work laptop so it's pretty basic. All my desktops, my dedicated [gaming] server & ftp server are all on gigabit ethernet so no worries there

Just to update my own status on the matter, I'm using neither wicd or networkmanager these days. wpa-supplicant for Slackware, ceni for Debian-based stuff.

Well for what it's worth, I'm back to NetworkManager. I found that the time it takes to reestablish a connection on my laptop after coming out of suspend is vastly shorter than with Wicd. I used to have to wait a minute or so for Wicd to reconnect (when it even would), but with NM the connection comes back almost immediately. Too bad, because I was really happy with Wicd otherwise.
