cannot connect to a wifi network

Hi I have a problem with conecting to my wifi. I see my wifi, but when i am trying to connect to it- i write the password and the password-window pop up again like the password is wrong (but it is good, on another laptop's ubuntu and on this laptop's windows everything is running just ok)

info:

cat /proc/version

Linux version 3.16.4-200.fc20.x86_64 (mockbuild@bkernel02.phx2.fedoraproject.org) (gcc version 4.8.3 20140911 (Red Hat 4.8.3-7) (GCC) ) #1 SMP Mon Oct 6 12:57:00 UTC 2014

I have tried to install drivers from https://github.com/FreedomBen/rtl8188ce-linux-driver/ but itwont compile.

I've set the MAC of the router to be the same as my laptop's MAC.

can some1 help? Lately I have lots of problems with this system and not a lot of time to learn step by step, sadly.
