Note: I'm VERY NEW to Ubuntu so I'd appreciate if any help was as detailed as possible.

I just got a M1530 from Dell with Ubuntu 8.04 preinstalled. When I tried connecting at home using the right 64 bit password, I kept getting a message that a 128-bit passphrase was needed. The problem has gotten worse in that now the Network Manager doesn't even find any networks. If I click "Connect to other Wireless Network" and enter the information by myself, not only is no connection made but the NM icon goes away alltogether.

And sorry for any spelling errors the Firefox spellchecker is on the fritz.
