Unhappy [Fedora]Can't connect to wireless network: Network manager keeps asking for password.


Hi!
Every time I try to connect to my home wireless network, the network manager asks for the WEP password. Even when I know it's correct, it doesn't connect and keeps asking over and over.
I've configured the network correctly, I know this because I'm running ubuntu on my netbook and it connects just fine with the same settings.
What really annoys me is that it worked a few days ago, and I don't remember having changed anything since them. Maybe an update issue, I think.
I've also searched all over the net, but cannot find a fix.
BTW I'm running Fedora 15 with GNOME 3.
Thanks in advance.
Nicolás.

I had similar problems on my netbook and Ubuntu. I removed Network Manager, instlled WICD, configured, problems gone.

Thanks, it seems it worked. Must be a bug or something like that on Network Manager.
