I need help to configure my wifi connection.
My access point is configured as follows:
Wireless Band: 802.11a (not g)
Authentication: WPA-PSK
Cypher type: AES

My notebook (Acer 5672)
OS: Ubuntu 8.10
Network Adaptor: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network

I tried to connect using the connection manager, but it seems to only want to use the TKIP cypher type. I can connect to other wifi networks with this PC. And my Macbook can connect to the AP without issue.
I am not sure how to configure this connection manually.
