wpa_supplicant & dhclient.

Also, I'm dealing with very marginal connections (campus wireless on a
university farm, and Windows takes a minute to associate then still has
no internet...).
So if you have a connection manager that you want tested, I'm sure I
could give it a hard case... 

As far as ephemeral wifi goes, it's just annoying for me. I'm aware of
folks who use wireless for servers, though that's asking for trouble.
