That the point: NM would possibly do its stuff - if it could. But the
great documentation and debugging abilities of NM make finding out
what's going on a real challenge. So I rather stick to wpa_supplicant.
NM uses it anyway. ;)

To make a long story short: both WPA and WPA2 work fine but the key
cipher is important. TKIP works, AES (CCMP) does *not*. Since my AP was
broadcasting both of them wpa_supplicant chose AES and was stuck. Since
I do not know how to tell NM to explicitly use TKIP I have to restrict
my AP to TKIP or give up on NM and use wpa_supplicant directly. This is
not a comforting decision, since WPA/TKIP has been cracked.

I would like you to confirm or to disprove my conclusion. Do you
successfully use the Eee 1000H with WPA(2)+AES? Is it possible?
