    While it doesn't have any pretty Gnome Shell support, WICD is the way to go. It's the only thing that would fix my wireless issue.

    Uninstalling network-manager and installing wicd worked for me.

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 Wireless problem (Video)

    When upgrading from 10.10 to 11.04 via the upgrade path 11.04 threw away the network connection used to do the upgrade and I had hours of struggling to get it to work again to the point where I may not upgrade to 11.10 for fear that the same thing will happen. I connect via a Vodafone dongle and the files I had to load and mess with were bcm43xx files. Anyone know why a working system would throw away its access point to the internet in the first place whilst doing an upgrade??

    Re: Ubuntu 11.10 Wireless problem (Video)

    Seems like every post about solving a wireless problem says to remove network-manager and install wicd. Is there no way to get it to work? I'd kinda like to keep it around for my wired connection which is working fine.

    My problem is that it won't connect to the router. Even when I store the correct password (in network-manager Edit Connections) it still asks for a password. That dialog accepts a max of 26 characters, and when I generate a random password on the router it is longer than that. When I specify a shorter password on the router and then try to enter it in this dialog, the Connect button is disabled. The button enables when exactly 5 or 13 characters have been entered, which makes no sense at all to me. A password of exactly that length doesn't work either.

    Try running these command:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get clean
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall network-manager
    You may need to connect to a wired network for this to work.

    Worked like a charm.

    I'm not sure what happened, but I ended up reinstalling Ubuntu because I borked Gnome because of a few overly-ambitious tweaks. After it was done installing, it appeared that network-manager had gotten a new update. I think a newer version fixed whatever bug there was.

    My solution is restart with the the wireless adapter unpluged(or desactivated if its integrated) then enter the network manager->wireless and edit the conection and check the last option:available for all users and save then restart and plug the adapter or activate if integrated.
    this is the way I solved it. thanks to the comunity
    sorry for my english

    I like to know how you pulled up the wpa_gui when you typed in "sudo wpa_gui" in the terminal. Did you download some kind of application to get that gui?? Please explain.
