You'll need a program like wpa_supplicant to get WPA to work at this time.  It
should work fine with FC3.  wireless-tools itself doesn't support WPA at this
time, and there's really not that much it could support.  There's a lot more to
WPA than just WPA-PSK...

wpa_supplicant is your best bet.  There's also Xsupplicant.
