Also, in NM-applet, how have you configured your Wifi-security? WEP 40/128-bit key? I suggest you input it as hex.

If these things don't work, let's move to Plan B.
Killing wpa-supplicant didn't help but using WPA2 instead of WEP (configured 40/128-bit input as hex, I confirm that BTW) did

I'm marking this thread as solved, though TBH I didn't actually understand what was going wrong
and why it works now.

Anyway all is well that ends well.

Thanks everybody, especially mancha.
