wpa_supplicant not handshaking with wrtg54gs

I just bought a linksys wrtg54gs to replace my piece of crap SMC
wireless switch.  I had WPA working with it until I upgraded the
firmware (I think that was the event that stopped things from working
but am not positive).

wpa_supplicant on my client only shows me:

and then just sits looping in that event cycle.  iwlist shows me:

$ /sbin/iwlist wlan0 scan
wlan0     Scan completed :

This seems pretty basic but nothing obvious is popping out at me.  Any
ideas?
