[kubuntu] Intel Wifi Link 5100 not working correctly

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I recently purchased an asus ux50v and the wireless is acting very odd. Firstly, I can pick up wireless network with it if I install WICD, because knetworkmanager picks up no networks. Secondly, if I type wlist scan a bunch of networks do show up. I tried connecting to my wireless network with authentication being required and it kept saying "bad password", I tried after configuring my wireless router with open access and it still couldn't connect. Are there any ways I can fix this? Why doesn't knetworkmanager not show my networks? (Hardware)
