This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Seems to be no problem, if using kernel 2.6.30.....
Comment 4 Josep 2009-07-26 12:08:19 EDT
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.

Comment 5 Matthias Runge 2009-08-17 03:29:01 EDT
Seems to be fixed with the 2.6.30 (testing) kernel from koji.
Comment 6 Dan Williams 2009-11-11 12:33:01 EST
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.
