WPA conf file syntax error

Description

Can't get wifi working without hands.
Way to reproduce:

1) Have AP with WEP
2) When entering password, tick "show symbols" and "open text"
3) Enter 32-symbols hex passkey;
4) passkey saved with quotes => no wifi :)

WiFi? manager should at least check, if entered key is hex/text and propose switch setting respectedly, like "Seems as hex key, are you sure it's open text?"

Currently, it silently failing.

We've added a check so that if a hex key is entered it will check to make sure hex mode is enabled, and if not warn the user. In the reverse you can do the same thing for plain text keys. This doesn't automatically switch, but it won't silently fail anymore.
