Is the problem.  Let me guess; Broadcom hardware using wl.o perhaps?  Or
a staging driver?  We try to paper over this driver issue when we can,
and perhaps we can hack something else in here.
GENERAL.VENDOR:                         Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd.
GENERAL.PRODUCT:                        RTL8188CE 802.11b/g/n WiFi Adapter
GENERAL.DRIVER:                         rtl8192ce

If possible, can you:

dbus-send --system --print-reply
--dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager
org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.SetLogging string:"debug"
# dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager
org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.SetLogging string:"debug"
method return sender=:1.4 -> dest=:1.221 reply_serial=2

(with sudo or as root) and then reconnect to the IETF AP and grab the
resulting log output?  We're specifically interested in the bits for
"get_active_ap" and why there's no match; also what the values are for:

get_active_ap(): (wlan0): active BSSID: 00:30:gg:ff:ee:dd
get_active_ap(): (wlan0): active SSID: 'xxxxxxx'
This is unclear.  I turned off the wireless then turned it back on. Here
is everything from /var/log/messages from that.  How do I turn off the
debug logging now?
same dbus-send command, just instead of "debug" put "info".

[nm-device-wifi.c:513] get_active_ap(): (wlan0): active BSSID:

is the problem.  The device is saying it's not connected to anything.
When you see the "roamed from..." thing, can you run "iwconfig wlan0"
for me?  also "iw dev wlan0 link".
Anyway, this is what I am seeing right now:

# iwconfig wlan0
wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any
            Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=20 dBm
            Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr=2347 B   Fragment thr:off
            Encryption key:off
            Power Management:off

# iw dev wlan0 link
Not connected.

And yet I know I am connected as this message will be going out when I
click on send!
So at this point it's completely a driver problem.  If you're actually
connected, then *both* these commands should report that fact.  NM
trusts the kernel here, and the kernel is letting us down.  NM has no
way of knowing that we're connected to anything at all if the kernel
doesn't report that correctly :(

Great. So how do I get all this to the proper REALTEK people? One would think.... This is after all a Lenovo that once had a hisgtory of great Linux support...
