Bug Description

Binary package hint: wicd

I am connecting to an 802.11n WPA2 wireless network using AES for its PAP-TTLS authentication. Wicd is 1.7.0+ds1-2 on Ubuntu 10.04 x64, and my wireless card is an Intel 4965 AGN.

After a suspend-resume cycle, wicd will often fail at the Validating Authentication stage of connecting and sometimes even Obtaining IP Address, reporting a "Bad Password." I know that my identity/password combination works, because after a few cycles of disconnect/refresh networks/reconnect, wicd will successfully connect to the network. This is not a critical issue, just a minor annoyance.

Here is the template I am using for the network, in case my configuration is incorrect:
require identity *Identity password *Password
-----
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=admin
network={
       ssid="$_ESSID"
       scan_ssid=$_SCAN
       eap=TTLS
       identity="$_IDENTITY"
       password="$_PASSWORD"
       key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
       phase2="auth=PAP"
}
