I've installed Linux mint debian edition (LMDE), and following this tutorial > http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/161 I did installed the network driver.

The available connections appears to me, but when i try to connect to my connection at first time, I got this message:

(4) Did not receive a reply. Possible causes include: the remote application did not send a reply, the message bus security policy blocked the reply, the reply timeout expired, or the network connection was broken.

And the following tries, I got this another message:

(32) Insufficient privileges.

try this:

create missing file:

sudo nano /etc/polkit-1/localauthority/50-local.d/org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.pkla

put this in it:

[nm-applet]
Identity=unix-group:netdev
Action=org.freedesktop.NetworkManager.*
ResultAny=yes
ResultInactive=no

You aka USER should be member of the group netdev
