It's probably worth noting that you only have to jump through all these
hoops for NM <= 0.8 / Sugar <= 0.94. For NM 0.9 / Sugar 0.96+ all you
need to do is:
nmcli con up id '<essid>'
Or if you inherited the connection settings from a pre-0.96 Sugar installation:
nmcli con up id 'Auto <essid>'
You can list the available connection settings with:
nmcli con list
