I think I have a similar problem with NetworkManager. I have a wireless
network with no broadcast and WEP. No problem I think, I'll add it
using the 'wireless network' selection. It prompts me for an essid,
which I enter, and then a key, which I enter as a raw hex string. Now
most of the time applet will keep prompting me for the key even though I
know its correct.
