    Default [Help] problem with network starting and stopping

    Hello .
    I'am having problem with my broadcom wireless adapter which is that when im trying to connect to a network using wicd the computer will be lagged for about 2 minutes then it tells me bad password ( after trying to validating authentication ) .

    and also when i try to use command etc/init.d/networking (start/stop) its the same problem.

    by the way when im using eth0 (wired connection) it works perfectly so the only problem with wireless.

    Thanks for reading, i hope you help me.

    extra info..
    when use lspci | grep Broadcom i get this data
    03:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation Device 4727 (rev 01)

    Dunno if this will be any help, but I hope it is!

    Here is how I authenticate with my wifi card without wicid (my interface is wlan0). The stuff in CAPS is stuff that needs to be filed in.
    Throw this into a shell: iwconfig wlan0 essid NETWORK_ESSID key WIRELESS_KEY_IN_HEX
    Optionally, if you dont want to use the hex key: iwconfig wlan0 essid NETWORK_ESSID key s:WIRELESS_KEY_IN_ASCII
    Then obtain an ip with: dhclient wlan0
    Or just try wicd after that association.
