Could you paste in the output of '/sbin/iwlist wlan0 scan' for the block
describing your AP?


Okay upon further investigation, I now know that its not the securities that networkmanager cannot get, but for some reason networkmanager is not recognizing my device capabilities. Specifically, the return values of nm_device_wifi_get_capabilities are not correct anymore (NM_WIFI_DEVICE_CAP_WPA is not set). How is networkmanager getting these capabilities? I know that I recently updated to dbus 1.2.4 (from 1.1), hal 0.5.11 (from 0.5.10) and udev 130 (from 118). Would those updates have in anyway changed the way networkmanager operates to grab these capabilities?
