Wifi problem

I have problem connecting to WiFi
This are the settings witch i need to use.

I put user name and password but when i check No CA is required, network manager is crashing and icon disappear from Notification area.
i need to log out to bring it back.

You use .... (KDE , Mate, other ? 32/64 bit ? Hardware ... )

network manager is crashing

Try run from terminal, this is first step to debug problem.

I am on xfce, NetworkManager Applet 1.2.2
Card Realtek RTL8187 Wireless Adapter driver: rtl8187
i try sudo nm-applet nothing happen.

Probably because nm-applet applet running in taskbar in tray. (maybe kill it wil needed before run command)
this use nmcli
and looks like text tool, http://www.tecmint.com/configure-network-connections-using-nmcli-tool-in-linux/

Check also

If nm-applet is not prompting for a password when connecting to new wifi networks, and is just disconnecting immediately, you may need to install gnome-keyring.

You can also test with other GUI tool https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/NetworkManager
For example /usr/bin/nmtui (use Tab key to switch button in terminal)

Here you can also find support for nmcli
https://wiki.gnome.org/Projects/NetworkManager


Edit:
Example:

$ pidof nm-applet
831
$ kill -15 831
$ nm-applet

However if you like to kill app you can use gui tool "task manager"

Now nm-applet working from terminal,
try configure network, If something wrong, in terminal should be error.

If not, to debug this app you can use strace command.

Maybe the problem is network-manager-applet and the temporary solution is to downgrade it.
Take a look here:

Run nm-cli from a terminal and see what the error is:

killall nm-applet
nm-applet

OK, let's get some more information about your system. Output of inxi -Fx between ``` tags, please, which Manjaro edition you installed, and when you last did a package update.

My ISP give me different settings for connection tipe.
Now i did a new connection with the setting you
provide and everything seams to work fine.
So thank you for your help.
