I never got SSIDs or passwords with spaces to work. Other special 
characters (quotes, ...) may have the same problem. Try to make it as 
simple as possible.

My strategy is:
 - Make sure the interface is up
 - Pick your network (once), and wait for the password dialog
 - Enter the password and wait for the configuration to finish (sometimes 
it doesn't, so wait until you are bored)
 - Reboot the computer

Settings should be saved and the connexion will be established (and 
working) after the reboot. It's not perfectly stable, but it works well
