I recently upgraded to 14.04 and over the last few days, I'm having frustrating problems while connecting to my home wifi network, one I've been connecting to without a problem (with earlier Ubuntu versions) for over a year. Windows computers and Android devices have no trouble connecting either.
The problem is that whenever I connect to the network and enter the correct password, it tries connecting for a little while, and simply gives the the 'Authentication required' dialog box again.
I have a Lenovo Z400 laptop (wifi works perfectly on Windows 8 on the same machine, by the way), and a Linksys EA4500 router.
The 'wireless' page in the router configuration looks like this (SSID and passphrase removed): http://imgur.com/0PWHRpo.

also, during while trying to connect,
dmesg | grep wlan0 tells me I've been
deauthenticated from <address> (Reason: 2).
I've also tried deleting all my saved networks, reboting and then reconnecting, which sometimes works, but sometimes doesn't.
Can someone please tell me why this is happening, and what I can do to fix it?
