The problem I have experienced often is that I can see the access points
with drakconf's network manager and when I select access point to
connect I can even enter the ac password. But after pressing the connect
button I will just get error after a while that can not connect.

But if I after that reboot, the wlan ap will be connected on next boot
automatically and it will work after that just fine.

I have a feeling that somehow drakconnects wlan connection interferes
with the gnome's own wlan connection manager that uses conman.
