Re: network mannager can't connect to secure wireless networks:

trying with all option available in GUI, finally i get connected with the option WEP 40/128-bit Hexadecimal and with the same password that i was typing whit the option WEP 128-bit Passphrase and autentication in Open System. The password was always ok, but i had selected the wrong Wireless Security option.

Let us assume that you know the passphrase of the AP. Now the statement
about the 128 bit Passphrase is somewhat untrue. The passphrase by
convention is either 104 bits (13 ascii characters) or 40 bits (5 ascii
characters). The first is more probable.

Now the GUI offers to let you enter as a bit-string or an ascii string.
Also as something else which I can't remember. Unless you are a
masochist you want to choose the 13 ascii character method, which
unfortunately is not the default option you are presented with.

In addition in gnome you may have set the passed from the gnome-keyring
if you have not set it.
