    Hello to everyone.

    I have a problem with Ubuntu 11.04, when i try to connect to new net wifi the dialog box does not show the WPA option. I can see it only when i choose new hidden network but then does not works too.
    But it is weird but with Ubuntu 10.04 in a laptop that dialog box option is visible... Why?

    Anybody knows how i can fix that problem?

    Thank you very much and sorry for my bad english

    When you right-click the WiFi-symbol in the task bar, there's a menu entry at the very bottom (don't know how it's called...) where you can choose WPA. At least it's like that on Linux Mint 11.

    The menu entry is called "Edit Connections...". Go to the "Wireless" tab and select your WLAN network. Click "Edit" to configure the available protocols. Browse the "Wireless Security" tab and select the desired security protocol from the dropdown menu. Enter your password and click on "Save".
