I've been messing around for a while and the problem seems to be getting an IP address from DHCP.
Listening on LPF/wlan0/7c:4f:b5:72:fb:7f
Sending on LPF/wlan0/7c:4f:b5:72:fb:7f
Sending on Socket/fallback
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 3
DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 7
(excuse any typos, I had to retype this by hand since it's on another computer with no internet, hence the post...)
Installing wicd led to a bad password error, which apparently can be wicd misinterpreting a failed dhcp request, so both NetworkManager and wicd are having this problem.
How can I fix this?

Was it working before [whatever you did]?
Is it to your own wlan access point that you're trying to connect to or is it something else?
The network problems appeared
I think it was a kernel update. I want to keep it around because it seems to have fixed a null pointer deref that caused random kernel panics
Yes, it was working fine - or as fine as wireless on linux can work, anyways
Yes, it's my access point (WPA2)
Xubuntu 12.10. And I don't think a different applet will fix this.
