On Ubuntu 2012.04 I open "Connect to Hidden Wireless Network", type the network name, click connect. After a minute the dialog below appears:

enter image description here

I can only cancel... not very helpful.
Why does the dialog not just offer me to type the password?

On Ubuntu 2011.04 I am asked for a password and it just works...

The network is WPA2 Personal, but this other issue means I have to select "None" for security.

  • Are there any unrecognized special characters (e.g. _´äöü8) in your key? – Takkat May 29 '12 at 6:51
  • @BasharatSial: I have no keyring problem. – Nicolas Raoul May 29 '12 at 8:32
  • @Takkat: the SSID contains only letters and underscores. The password only contains numbers. – Nicolas Raoul May 29 '12 at 8:34
  • Are you using TKIP or AES with WPA2? – ish May 29 '12 at 13:39

Solved by reinstalling 12.04, this time it works...
