On a Dell Studio 1745 with Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100, I can't get a
wireless connection to my Linksys WRT54G router. I have tried all modes:WEP,
WPA, WPA2_PSK, even open.

I tried this with NetworkManager, Wicd, and manual (iwconfig) without result.

This laptop/wireless card and router worked properly under openSUSE 11.2.

Modprobe finds the "iwlagn" driver loaded.

Wicd returned the error "could not connect to wicd's D-Bus interface" after
login. NetworkManager did not show a desktop error.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Attempt to connect to network with lan cable disconnected.
2.Connection fails.
3.Revert to ethernet cable connection.
Actual Results:
NetworkManager attempted wireless connection but was unsuccessful. Wicd daemon
failed to connect to D-Bus interface and stopped. Manual configuration failed
in all modes.

Expected Results:
All methods should have connected to wireless network

Hardware: Dell Studio 1745, x86_64, Intel Wifi 5100

Kernel driver: iwlagn
