Thanks for answers. I have tried several apps, including yours Phillip
and was unable to get them to work or compile.

Unfortunately I need a wireless applet on this machine because I share
it with another person who is not very computer literate. I did not mind
typing in the commands to connect to various networks, but it is not
sufficent for them. I thought FreeBSD could hang, but I had to switch to
Fedora. I'll check back in a year or so and see if any progress has been
made on this front.
