I have been through the posts here many times and done all the how-to's and it works..........then stops.
I am using a BCM4313 in an HP Pavilion DM3. Right now I am looking at the wonderful green swirls with 2 green dots.......Then disconnect.
I have reinstalled even and I get the same thing. I do see the available networks so the radio is working. Attached is a screenshot of that fact.

What did I set wrong. I know it's a setting but which one. I have even gone so far as a reinstall and I messed it up again. That time it worked for 2 days before doing this.
Thanks for your help.
