Package: plasma-widget-networkmanagement
Severity: important


i am trying desperated to get WLAN working without problems on wheezy.
One time i get a connection, then never again.

I installed the network manager to have a comfortable configuration, but it 
seems not to have the correct rights to work.
The scanning for hotspots does not work and when i manually create a WLAN connection and try to save it, it fails with insufficient privileges (see screenshot).

As you can see here i have access to WLAN functionality on the shell:

root@pc# iwlist wlan2 scan
wlan2     Scan completed :

                    IE: Unknown: DD0900037F01010020FF7F

But automatically it is not configured correct with the WPA key:

root@pc# iwconfig
wlan2     IEEE 802.11abg  ESSID:"dd-wrt"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz  Access Point: 00:1E:58:BB:80:CD
          Tx-Power=200 dBm
          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off

This is my current network configuration file:

root@pc:/etc/network# cat interfaces
allow-hotplug eth6
iface eth6 inet static
auto wlan2
iface wlan2 inet dhcp
        wpa-ssid "dd-wrt"
        wpa-psk "mysecretpassword"

Why the network manager has not enough privileges?
Any other idea to solve the problem?

Best regards
