Re: no WPA for intel pro wireless 3945 ABG when using static ip address

I'm running ubuntu feisty fawn with version 0.6.4 of the

roaming mode and using a static ip address.
My intel 3945 ABG and its driver do support wpa/wpa2.

How can I force networkmanager into using wpa/wpa2 in this case?

I've been able to connect to my us robotics MAXG 5451 access point
using WPA2 though, using the roaming mode of the networkmanager. In
this case I have to add a new default gateway to my routing table upon
connection because networkmanager stubbornly configures an invalid
one. It also keeps on emptying my resolv.conf file so I have to add a
valid nameserver too.

What is going wrong in this case and how can I resolve it.

Thanks in advance,

kind regards,

Right now Network Manager does not support static ip addresses so when
you enable that in Ubuntu your wireless device is being managed by the
default Gnome applet which doesn't support WPA.

Static IP support is planned for the 0.7 release
