Wicd works just fine with wpa2. NM (9.10 version) is working just fine
with wpa2 also & yes you're detracting from the thread :-)

Note to Frank: just tested w/NM & wpa2 w/DHCP & that seems to be working
fine. Once the other users are off the router (a few hours I'm told)
I'll isolate it & try testing w/no security set.
