Thanks, that was a big step forward. A wired connection works now, but
I have problems with the wireless connection.

Do I really need to setup everything manually? With wicd SSID was
recognized automatically. I cant find with my Friztbox setup BSSID. Can
I leave it empty with the nm-applet?

I would prefer not to use a dhcp-server, but if it is a lot easier, I
will use one. This was no problem with wicd too.
