       I have here a laptop (hp pavilion dv6700 ) with ubuntu 10.10 and
a broadcom (bcm 94312 LP-PHY) wireless card using the non-free drivers

WPA2/AES router, I can enter my password and it will be trying to
connect for about a minute and then go back to asking for the password
again. But, if I replace network-manager with wicd, I have no problem
connecting. Why would NM not like this setup?

Have you checked the dmesg output? The kernel in 10.10 may not have all the improvements in b43 needed to operate your BCM4312. Upgrading to the compat-wireless package should fix that.
