    Did you really never used NM, the default Ubuntu wireless app?!
    Alright, I stand corrected.

    No, I never really used it. I tried on a few occasions, but I don't like NM much.

    Re: HOWTO: Wireless Security - WPA1, WPA2, LEAP, etc.

    I tried your --Sample configuration WPA1 & DHCP, ESSID broadcast enabled -- without success.

    It may be that I'm using that pesky 4318 Broadcom card.

    It took me forever to install the driver for that card, now I can wireless connect, but can't WPA.

    See the attachment to read my configuration

    Thank you for the time

    No, I don't.
    Looks like I won't get help here then. Probably complete Ubuntu reinstall is coming...

    Now I can see how exactly "Ubuntu is 'humanity towards others'. It is 'the belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity'."

    Probably I have to get back to the XP concept of "universal bond of sharing that connects".

    I'm sorry you can't find any help. Unfortunately I'm an Ubuntu-n00b as well and not that big a computer expert
    However, it seems to me that it's not always possible to get Ubuntu working with a wireless connection...

    Gee, what a buggy soft... I thought after all these years Linux could have been more mature.

    Anyway, as far as I understand, NM and wicd are just GUI interfaces to some real command-line, flat file settings. Is there any way I can get rid of them and do it (discover and connect) manually?

    You won't believe it, but yes, just follow this tutorial...

    Alternatively, try Kevdog's tutorial. It's definitely worth a try and my preferred solution at the moment:

    Thank you, you are very helpful.
    BTW, sorry for the noob question, but it's hard to browse through 170+ pages: what's wrong with WEP? All my neighbourgs seem to use it.
