I know I will have to connect through wireless that is using WPA2/LEAP/AES.

Will my networkmanager connect to this network?

UPDATE: then why can't I find "AES" or CCMP in my nm-applet on Ubuntu 10.04?

It surely supports WPA2-CCMP-AES. I'm pretty sure it does LEAP as well. – derobert Jan 21 '13 at 20:55
Yes it does.... – Ulrich Dangel Jan 21 '13 at 21:26

Wireless connections are handled through WPA Supplicant; which supports WPA2, LEAP, AES, and more.

NetworkManager does not handle all the type of connections that wpa_supplicant supports, so this is not sufficient. – BatchyX Jan 22 '13 at 8:43

According to the announcements for Fedora 13 (2010) NetworkManager suports WPA personal and enterprise.
