Unfortunately I don't succeed to connect to my zyxel 660HW (wpa-psk) on paldo stable (build 2009-11-06).
When the CD is run, I get the feed back from the network manager: No network connection, but my ssid is displayed. I click on my ssid,
the window "wireless network authentication required" pops up
the encryption is displayed correctly as wpa & wpa2-personal (it's wpa), I enter the correct password, the window "choose password for default keyring" pops up, I enter a password and then the window "wireless network authentication required" pops up again (with a password). When I select "show password", a total different key appears (not the key, which I entered before). I have replaced the wrong wpa-key by the good one and I click ok and the the story again (a wrong key appears).
I have tested two usb wireless sticks with the rt2500 and rt73 chipset. These keys work with Ubuntu and Debian Lenny.
I have this problem for about 4 months now (tried different stable builds).

hi mumpf,

i encountered the same problem with my last installation

what worked for me as a workaround

in a terminal you enter

wpa_passphrase yourssid yourpassphrase

in the output you look for the psk-key

psk=thecomputedpresharedkey

this key you enter in the networkmanager

Hi yuwnarg

Thanks for this hint, works perfectly. I wonder what has been changed in network-manager or paldo. To me this is a heavy bug, because I only have a wireless connection.

That's the result of your hint

wpa_passphrase myssid mypassphrase
network={
ssid="myssid"
#psk="mypassphrase"
psk=thepaldopassphrase
}
