I believe I had exactly the same problem you have because Network
Manager does not (fully) support WPA2 and that is the way the encryption
of my wireless router is set.

My solution: install Wicd http://wicd.sourceforge.net if you can

This is a good idea. Does it mean that I have to get rid of Network Manager
though and will it potentially interfere with other functions of that
program?

Thanks alot.

Sam

Well, by default, when you install Wicd, Network-Manager is uninstalled.
And the install procedure is really simple: you add one line to your
apt.lst (if i'm not wrong) and then you sudo apt-get update and after
that sudo apt-get install wicd ... As simple as that. Add
/opt/wicd/tray.py to your startup (in System->Preferences->Sessions) and
restart.

Then you're good to go.

I find the Gnome network tools work fine with WPA2. I uninstalled the KDE
ones.

i find ubuntu chooses WEP 128-bit passphrase for me automatically when i
really need WEP 128-bit HEX.

Thanks David. I was hesitant to remove network manager and this solution was
much easier.
