    "connect" button is greyed out, can't click it to connect to wifi

    I have a wifi router "NetGear Wilress-G Router WGR614 v9". Looks like ubuntu can recongnize it because it shows in the metwork manager panel. when I try to connect to it, I see the "connect" button is disabled that Ican't click it. I've attached the screen shot. anyone has any idea how to enable the "connect" button. thank you!

    I could be completely wrong on this, but try it out if you can. I think there is a minimum length requirement for WPA key's for the connection manager. If your key is as short as it is, I think I counted 7 dots, try modifying your passkey in the router to make it a bit longer. Can't hurt to try, and at the same time add a bit of security with a more complex key.
