Ubuntu wireless validating authentication

Hi, Bizarre stuff...prepared this lappy for a colleague and made sure everything was working, especially wireless...

I have put his unability to connect to perhaps a wrong manip on a new environment, but... I can see and select the desired network in the network applet, it will ask for the password , which is saved in gnome keyring, but won't connect and ask for the password again and again.

Theses locations have the same sort of "open" hotspots. Assuming I have credentials to do this on a particular provider's network, how can I automate that part of the process without requiring me to open a terminal session to the Pi?

Is it possible that someone else may have altered the password settings in the router? still using the same one on the lappy I am typing now.Binary package hint: wicd lsb_release -rd Description: Ubuntu lucid (development branch) Release: 10.04 apt-cache policy wicd wicd: Installed: 1.7.0-2 Candidate: 1.7.0-2 Version table: *** 1.7.0-2 0 500 Expected result Able to connect to hidden wpa2 wireless network Actual result Following a software update, wicd stopped connecting to my wpa2 hidden network.It is able to find the hidden network but fails to connect with the error message "Bad Password".

At that point I began getting the behavior described in the bug description. Running the two concurrently is a bit funky, so I'm using only network-april 15 - without changing any settings, wicd works for me again. I try suspend out - on resume I get the broken wicd behavior again.
