wpa-psk with atheros fails
Last modified: 2008-11-17 13:36:06 EST
Description of problem:
Cannot connect to wireless network using WPA-PSK using the atheros card.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@gondor ~]# uname -r
It has never associated. I have had a couple of hangs, but those are sporadic,
and am not sure if they are related to wireless (most likely they are, because
the system was otherwise quite stable with madiwifi)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run wlassistant
2. Fails to associate.
Does not associate. Sometimes causes a hang
should connect to the wireless network
attaching lspci -vvv
Let me know what else is needed.

I forgot to mention, it connects to open networks.
Can you recreate this issue with the current kernels?
If so, please attach the contents of /var/log/messages after a failed connection

dmesg with 126.96.36.199-19.fc8
has the first connection, without any authentication. One by mistake with WEP,
others with WPA-PSK, and finally attempting to connect without authentication
which also failed.
Please see bug 458972 comment 11...
Disregard comment 6, I think this bug was for a much earlier problem. Does the problem persist with current kernels?
I am currently on vacation, and will be in a position to test in about 10 days time. I will respond back then.
OK, I just tested it and it works. You can go ahead and close the bug. Thanks a lot!
