Public bug reported:
I've recently upgraded to Karmic.
Hardware is OK - Lenovo ThinkPad T500, dual boot Ubuntu/Vista.
Under Vista everything working fine.
Under Ubuntu I'm unable to connect to my home wireless network which has hidden
SSID and WPA-PSK/TKIP password.
If I change the router settings to enable the SSID broadcast, then Ubuntu has
no problems with this WiFi connection - same password/WPA-PSK.
Thus, I assume, that the problem is only about connecting to hidden SSID
networks with WPA-PSK/TKIP passwords.
I know, that hidden SSID is not helping to much with security, but I still want
to have SSID broadcasting turned-off.
Could you please advise, how to solve the problem?
Thank you in advance.
