wireless WPA router works fine but not WPA/WPA2

I could surf fine with 3 wireless connections I have tried in a Library and a 2 restaurants. Everything works perfectly. But when I try to connect to a WPA/WPA2 router it says :

I used the nm-tool command to check out the connection state:

- Device: wlan0 [WLAN_ED2D] ---------------------------------------------------
Type: 802.11 WiFi
Driver: rtl8192se
State: connected
Default: yes
HW Address: 1C:65:9D:11:64:6C

Speed: 18 Mb/s

Wireless Properties
WEP Encryption: yes
WPA Encryption: yes
WPA2 Encryption: yes


I will appreciate any tips or suggestions. I love Linux Ubuntu 12.06

Thank you in advance
