Public bug reported:

lsb_release -rd
Description: Ubuntu 8.04.2
Release: 8.04.2

Wireless Hardware: Intel Wireless 3945ABG, driver iwl3945

When connecting to a hidden SSID WPA Enterprise network, I get rejected
using kernel 2.6.24-23-generic all of the time (have only been able to
connect once), and get rejected every time when connecting from my
office. Rebooting and using 2.6.24-22-generic fixes the problem always.
Connecting to my home WPA-Personal non-hidden SSID network is fine with
both kernels.

Please let me know what other information I can provide in order to help
with this bug.

This is a re-post of Bug #317976 using the "ubuntu-bug -p linux" command, and also trying to provide more info as found in 
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/KernelTeamBugPolicies .  Please note that the "ubuntu-bug -p linux" command was run when I could connect to the internet (-22), and not with the kernel that the bug occurs on.  I'm attaching uname -a, /proc/version_signature, lspci -vvnn, /var/log/syslog, and dmesg for both successful (kernel 2.6.24-22) and failed (kernel 2.6.24-23) connection attempts.  In an attempt not to spam the thread with 10 attachments, I'm going to tar the files and upload one attachment.  If having the individual files attached is preferable, please let me know and I will do that immediately.
