I have an issue with the wireless network. I have a new router and it seems to work right, but sometimes, the wireless network is disconnected.

When I try to connect again I get the error: Bad Password. But the password is correct. Then, I need to restart the PC so that the wireless network works again.

I had the same issue a long time ago with Network Manager, and I solved it replacing with Wicd. Now I'm using Wicd.

I'm using Linux Mint 13 Maya. The router is an Amper ASL-26555.

wicd.log says:

Any idea of how to solve it?

Update:

I've talked with my Internet provider and said that probably it is due to the encryption type. It is WPA and they require me to use WEP. But I'd prefer not to use a weaker encryption.

┬┐Anyone has had this kind of issue?
