[Bug 1436891] Re: Cannot connect to any WiFi access point which runs wireless-N


Oh my! Who had the bad idea to make "network-manager" and "plasma-
desktop" dependent packages? In other versions of Kubuntu I just
uninstalled network-manager so that wicd can to work.

  Cannot connect to any WiFi access point which runs wireless-N

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  When attempting to connect to a WiFi access point with N wireless, two popup messages appear:
  Connection 'SSID' deactivated.
  The WiFi network could not be found

  Expected behaviour:  Connects to network.

  Minimal demonstration:  connect to a WiFi access point by both LAN and
  WiFi B/G.  Log in to access point, change it to B/G/N.  Connection is
  lost, cannot be re-established until reverted to B/G.

  Previous troubleshooting located here:

  Description:    Ubuntu Vivid Vervet (development branch)
  Release:        15.04
  linux-firmware 1.143

  Can connect normally (with N) from 14.04.2 and 14.10 live CDs.  Can
  connect in 15.04 if and only if N deactivated in access point.
