This might be the same thing I bitched about yesterday – NetworkManager  
suffered brain damage, and doesn't know how to ask you for the password.

After making the connection attempt, go into Network Connections. In the  
wireless tab, find an entry named for the access point, and in the security  
tab enter the access point's password.

Then you should be able to connect.
