Symptoms: Using WPA-PSK to adsl wifi AP, all works fine, if i then have a powerfailure and the AP reboot, the laptop/network manager refuses to reconnect. It still sees the AP, but will not reconnect until i reboot.

I have tried to remove the wifi modules, switch the hardware wifi switch on and off, but after reloading modules, it still won't connect, only a reboot fixes.
