I think I have the same problem. The connection applet shows that
I can connect and I get assigned an ip address, etc except that
"Connection Manager->Internet Connection->IPAddress->Default router
says "(none)".

If I set the wifi connection to use a static ip, netmask and
default route, still no default router gets set.

>From xterm, /etc/sbin/route segfaults

Connection over a mobile phone works, correctly setting a
default route.

wierd, I'm contacting nokia shortly.
