I dont know if you can but I use WICD at wicd.sourceforge.net to sort
out this and similar problems with wired networks with different
settings. It replaces (k)networkmanager in other words.

Thanks,

WICD seems to be working well now. Now let me ask you how I could generate a
script that would execute after connecting to a couple of nets that would
transparently change my proxy settings from direct connect to using a proxy
for all my browsers, (konqueror, konq4, and firefox) when attaching to
certian nets?

You are now well beyond my knowledge of using Wicd so I suggest you try
the user forums. Normally a reply shows up within hours if anyone knows
the answer to your query.

Hi!
In WICD you can define scripts to be executed before and after you
connect to a network. In there you could put a script that exports the
variable http_proxy.
Only thing, that is not too good about that way is: it doesnt work for
Firefox. So, if you know a way to define a proxy for firefox from an
external source, thats how you can do it . But it should work for
the Konquerors.

Also, there is an extension to firefox that is quite good for dealing
with many different proxies, but I seem to have misplaced the name and
I'm not at my personal machine...

I'll try to get back to you when I get home!

Cheers
