Another vote here for giving up on knetworkmanager - it doesn't work properly in 4.2 either, or not for me anyway, so I don't think there's much change of a working backport to 3.5!

I use wicd for jumping on and off wireless networks, but that is flaky too. At least it works, and if it doesn't you can see what command lines it tried to use which helps you troubleshoot.

Knetworkmanager has been buggy for quite a while and only has caused me 
troubles.  My workaround is using nm-applet which works like a charm...
Hope that helps.
