I am trying to connect to my WIFI router which uses WPA security only. However, in the security tab of KNnetworkManager WPA security is not available (WEP is however). I have used NetworkManager from a XFCE session and there I could connect. Later on, I re-login in KDE and it works, but how can I setup it with KDE in the first place?

I am using Fedora 16 32 bits.

Fedora already have WPA1/2 Encryption Support also KDE too. Check with this command ;

$ nm-tool

You should see like this

- Device: wlan0 ----------------------------------------------------------------
  Type:              802.11 WiFi
  Driver:            mydrivername
  State:             disconnected
  Default:           no
  HW Address:        XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX


  Wireless Properties
    WEP Encryption:  yes
    WPA Encryption:  yes
    WPA2 Encryption: yes

If you see this , your wi-fi card already support WPA and WPA2 Encryptions.

My suggest update your machine and If you still have this problem. Please report to "Bugzilla"
