    Hello all, I am running Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit and after a recent update my NM icon upon boot up shows connecting to my wifi then I get the "connected" notification on screen but the NM icon on the task bar shows that I am not connected with the exclamation mark. Wifi works just fine. Like I said this happened after a recent update. I am using a Linksys WMP600N pci card @ 5ghz. I really shouldn't complain but it's my only eyesore. I google'd and couldn't find anything recent nor relevant. The icon does show it connecting then I get the !.

    I'm sorry, I should have mentioned that I did try WICD which is fine but from boot to desktop I find myself waiting way to long for wicd to connect to my network. Not sure if it's because i'm running a 5ghz network. I did reinstall NM and removed any config file in /~home but still same issue. I do like wicd but me sitting waiting 20-30 seconds looking at my desktop for a connection sux.

    I see. Have you tried anything here http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=7605785 Maybe scroll down about half way to:- TIP: faster connection time
    For better performance in establishing a connection, get the latest stable version (read step 1.a) and select ioctl backend under Preferences > Advanced Settings.
    (wicd).
