If you can, the best solution is to use wpa_supplicant to identify your
networks and provide appropriate authentication. It just takes a little
editing of the wpa_supplicant.conf. There's also a gui for it if you prefer,
archwiki has the best howto for it here:
NM is not the most reliable piece of software, and wicd only allows one network
interface to be used at a time last I tried it.
