Comment 25 for bug 994255

I read here : http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2047426 : and in other places that the issue might be with network-manager itself as opposed to the driver, and that this problem could be resolved by using 'wicd' instead of network manager. I therefore tried using 'wicd' instead of network-manager, but once again faced the same problem - I am not able to connect to the network when using the proposed driver. When I was using wicd, the status message showed that I am able to get past the authentication stage, and then it takes infinitely long time at the 'Obtaining IP address' stage.
