Support for IBSS WPA-None TKIP - can it be implemented?

Does not work for me. Still can only use WEP as the best method of 
encryption.

My hardware setup is:
- on one side - Toshiba e800 PocketPC with Windows Mobile 2003 Second 
Edition
- on the other side - Fedora Core 3 box with D-Link DWL-G520+ 802.11g 
adapter (TI ACX111 chipset), using ndiswrapper

It skipped connection until Ive set
  pairwise = NONE
(seem that PDA reports WPA with pairwise key cap set to none, group key cap 
set to TKIP)

But even since that no success. Now it tries to authenticate but 
authentication time outs.

No much useful info in the log either.

Selecting BSS from priority group 5
0: 00:4e:0e:4e:02:15 ssid='cell.home' wpa_ie_len=24 rsn_ie_len=0
   selected
