I had my Edimax 7711utn USB wireless adapter working perfectly on 10.04, but it has stopped connecting to my router after upgrading to 10.10. The network manager detects my router but will not connect to it. After a few minutes it asks for the WPA password but will still not connect. When booting the computer, if I select the 2.6.32 .25 kernel the wireless works Ok. it just doesn't work using the 2.6.35.22 kernel.

I have since discovered that it will connect if the SSID is not hidden. Does anyone know why it will not connect with a hidden SSID?
