I works here! Now I can connect to the university's WPA2 Enterprise network w/ WPA-EAP PEAPv0 MSCHAPv2. I have an HP Pavillion dv9000t (Intel 3945 wireless adapter).

It works for me in kubuntu 9.04 after updating the plasmoid using the
deb packages in Hermansson's ppa (as listed above). Even after I updated
the packages, it still wouldn´t even try to connect as Christophe Dumez
described in his post above:

>> cat /var/log/daemon.log
>NetworkManager: <WARN> wait_for_connection_expired(): connection (2) /org/freedesktop/NetworkManagerSettings/1 >failed to activate (timedout): (0) Connection was not provided by any settings service.
>looks like it is not even trying to connect to the AP because I have nothing in wpa_supplicant log.

Looks like another bug in the plasmoid. It seems to me that every time
you click on a networks name, the plasmoid creates another entry for
that network, with empty settings. So even if you had already set
everything up before, the plasmoid will not use the settings "myNetwork"
(that you saved beforehand) next time you click on "myNetwork" in the
list of networks detected.

Here's how I got it to work for me:

0) Make sure running the updated packages from Hermansson's ppa
1) Go into the plasmoid's "manage connections" and delete all "myNetwork" entries you find
2) Properly set up a new entry for your network SSID (e.g. myNetwork) and mark the checkbox that says "connect automatically"
3) reboot
4) when you log in next time, you'll find that the connection is already activated.

Hope this works for those here still having problems.
