Ok, I figured out what was wrong with knetwork manager and connecting to my
wireless network. I had to delete the knetworkmanagerrc file in
~/.kde/share/config/, and open up my kwallet and delete the network password.
That allowed me to get to the "connect options" dialog when trying to connect
again. Before, I was able to select "Automatic" for the WPA protocol, and it
would automatically select the right one. Now, when I select "Automatic", it
tries to connect with CCMP (i know this by opening up wpa_gui while
knetworkmanager is trying to connect). Interestingly enough, when trying to
connect to my wireless in knetwork manager, the only other option available
to me was "TKIP", the correct option. But, selecting Automatic would try for

This appears to be a problem with the NetworkManager package, and not
KNetworkManager, because if this symptom doesn't occur unless if I upgrade
the NetworkManager package.

To remedy the problem, I select TKIP for the WPA protocol when trying to
connect, and all works fine and dandy.
