Bug Description

Very simply, there is no reliable encryption that works with Wireless N except WPA2 with AES.

The menu in WICD to set up a connection doesn't list anything close to this so the user doesn't know what to choose.

I understand that WPA 1/2 might be the correct choice (it is working for me) -- but why make it trial and error for each and every user?

Can you:

1) Please change the menu to read:

WPA 1 or 2 (autodetect encryption method)

if this is what is meant. As it is now it reads WPA one-half (that is what wpa 1/2 looks like)

2) if there is another encryption choice that works that is fine but I can't figure out what it is... from the menu.
