Perhaps you could connect to a wired interface temporarily and do cat /etc/resolv.conf from a terminal (this file contains the DNS resolution address(es) in use for the current session). If you can find this info (either via my method above or in some other way), you would put it into the "DNS servers" field in the configuration of your wireless interface.
I tried switching it to manual, this is what i typed in:
192.168.1.3, 255.255.255.0, 192.168.1.1
Tried cat /etc/resolv.conf
and the response was 192.168.1.1 only. Thats what i put in the "DNS servers". Also tried without it.
While the method was set to Manual it kept trying to connect over and over again and asking me for the password to the network every minute or so. After 4-5 password queries it said "disconnected".
EDIT: I found a typo in the MTU field
I corrected it but nothing changed.
