Bug Description

I'm using the 2.6.27-2 kernel with the ath9k driver for my DWA-552 card, and its working great.
When I try to use the 2.6.27-3 kernel, the nm-applet tried to connect, seems to make progress, and then just asks me for the key, which is already has. If I hit 'connect', it just does the same thing, whatever.

Without nm-applet running, and having my info in /etc/network/interfaces, the card seems to be connected, according to iwconfig. Running dhclient fails to obtain an ipaddress, whereas in the 27-2 kernel, it succeeds.

I'm running the alpha of intrepid.

UPDATE: someone suggested I try wicd, and wicd works on both -2 and -3. dhclient actually fails on both -2 and -3. Do I get it? nope.

did some testing. I found that I can't configure my wifi card with ifup and dhclient. It fails like on -3.

Only nm-applet can get my wireless to connect.
