hey thanks khayyam for your help. Appriciated
Well this wpa_supplicant doesn't just want to work with my router AES and TKIP after reading this article http://etutorials.org/Networking/Wireless+lan+security/Chapter+8.+WLAN+Encryption+and+Data+Integrity+Protocols/Key+Management/

I don't like wicd but had no choice to install it. but upon installing it I was suprise on how easy it was to set up and start. What a waist of 3 days. Thanks

chessmaster ... not sure what in the article leads you to think that ...

In which case you'll be suprised to hear that wicd uses wpa_supplicant for establishing the connection, authentication, etc. If it works with wicd then its a question of some parameter in your wpa_supplicant.conf.

As I know there are various issue with iwlwifi, you might try the following:

/etc/modprobe.d/iwlwifi.conf
Code:
options iwlwifi 11n_disable=1 swcrypto=1 bt_coex_active=0 power_save=0 auto_agg=0

Also, its probably a good idea to disable ipv6 (as shown above).

Honestly from the above that waste could have been avoided had you approached the problem systematically.

best ... khay
