Try starting "wp_supplicant" in debug mode to make the log more verbose
about that error. It seems failing at some point of the authentication.
wicd calls wpa_supplicant with wext. I don't see a preferences setting
to change to cause more debugging.
"wpa_supplicant" can be run directly. IIRC, "-dd" modifier switched into
debug mode. "man wpa_supplicant" for additional/detailed info on how to
get this done.
Also, try to lower the security a bit by choosing WPA-PSK (TKIP) or
WPA2- PSK (AES+TKIP) instead just AES. Stronger encryption requires
better coberture so devices can "dialogue" smoothly.
I just tried as many variations as I could without success. I'm not
100% sure I am always matching the router settings with the laptop wicd
That is an important setting to check. Reviwer your "/etc/dbus-1/system.d/
wpa_supplicant.conf" or whatever the config file is. AP and
wpa_supplicant settings must match.
