So my WiFi can connect with WICD, but not the default KDE network manager. I would like to know why. Do both these applications handle the connection differently? If so what would the difference be?

My hardware is a Broadcom 4313. I've tried the STA drivers and the open source drivers, and a few other options with Network Manager. None of which worked. In fact, everything was working fine for a while, just that one day, it didn't. I can't identify what i did to trigger this issue though.

And to be more specific: Even with network manager, I could connect to open connections (the ones without a password), I can connect to WPA connections, just not to one particular WEP.
