Bug Description

Occured on a mostly fresh install of 12.04 (installed by first using the mini .iso and then $ sudo apt-get install ubuntu).

Initially, the nm-applet was not able to manage my wi-fi device (eth1). As a workaround, I installed wicd from the Ubuntu Software Centre and uninstalled network-manager via the terminal
$ sudo apt-get remove network-manager

Later, I decided I wanted to try and debug my issue with network-manager. I uninstalled wicd and re-installed network-manager
$ sudo apt-get remove wicd
$ sudo apt-get install network-manager
$ sudo apt-get autoremove

Before restarting, I checked /etc/network/interfaces and found eth1 listed there. The NetworkManager website says that devices listed in /etc/network/interfaces are not managed on Debian and Ubuntu, so I commented out the lines for my device and rebooted.

After logging in, I noticed that the nm-applet was now able to list nearby networks, but some networks were greyed out. I suspect the greyed out networks were using WPA authentication while the rest of the networks were either WEP or unsecured. (This card does support WPA/WPA2, however).

I clicked on the option "Create a new network", and then network manager (and the applet?) crashed.

After that, I tried
$ sudo iwlist scan

which worked as expected.

Then I tried
$ iwconfig eth1 essid <my network>
Error for wireless request "Set ESSID" (8B1A) :
    SET failed on device eth1 ; Operation not permitted.

That's really interesting because this kind of error should never happen. However, you claim that the wireless device should support WPA (which I have no trouble believing, it really should), but nm-applet seems to disagree, which sounds quite a lot like bug 908380 specific to the ipw2200 driver. Marking this bug as a dupe of 908380.
