Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Seems to be no problem, if using kernel 2.6.30.....
Same problem. I have not yet been able to establish a connection to a WPA router. The logs look the same as shown in the attached file.
I have no trouble with a WPA2 router, though. It worked flawlessly on Fedora 10.

Seems to be fixed with the 2.6.30 (testing) kernel from koji.
Yeah, 2.6.30 (F11) kernels work pretty well with a dual-band ath5k for me with WPA-PSK as well. Closing... Final diagnosis is a kernel driver bug.
