You should have a line like "connect result is failed" in your log to testify that. We ran 100 system start-up sequences on a fresh clean and fully updated standard installation of xubuntu 12.10.— The shortest sequences were with 1 BAD PASSWORD error message, followed by a manual click on the Connect button followed by a successful connection. It detects but doesn't connect my wi-fi at home, even though it connects my phone's wi-fi hot spot. I searched all the forum and tried a few tricks but they didn't solve the issue.

– Installed using synaptic and the ubuntu quantal (12.10) repos: wicd‑daemon, wicd‑gtk, python‑wicd.
– Configured the Wi Fi network in wicd with correct SSID and WPA2 password data.
Hello, it would've been much more useful if you attached your to the bugreport; instead of writing an essay.
The "bad password" message might be misleading, but it means that wpa_supplicant failed.
