I use Kubuntu 9.10 on an Asus F6Ve (Intel WiFi Link 1000bgn and module iwlagn) and had the same problem with knetworkmanager. I replaced it with nm-applet but, while better with network-manager-vpnc than knetworkmanager, it didn't connect either.

So I tried to force scanning of my particular hidden ssid (let's call it "whereRU") with :

sudo iwlist wlan0 scan essid whereRU

and ... after a few seconds... tada... IT WORKS !

and with knetworkmanager too.

I suppose iwlagn can't find a hidden ssid until you put its nose ON it ;-)

Hope this helps
