Big question -- are you using Ndiswrapper, & if yes, what version? If yes, 
then wpa_supplicant doesn't work with any version less than 1.4 (I think), & 
the one provided by default with Kubuntu in the apt repositories is much 
lower; 1.1 I think.

of whom you get to do it; or rather of who manages to get 
people to let them do it to them. 
To summarize: it is a well-known fact that those people who 
must want to rule people are, ipso facto, those least suited
to do it.  
To summarize the summary: anyone who is capable of getting 
themselves made President should on no account be allowed to
do the job."
