Hi Nils,

I tried that already but without the network name (essid) it won't let me click the 'Connect' button.
Also if I put in the essid name (even though the router isn't broadcasting it -- 'don't broadcast 
essid' option) then KnetworkManager tries but gives up after about 45 seconds with a can't 
connect error.
This is 8.04
