I have a problem trying to connect to an access point with WPA-PSK/CCMP
using with a Prism2.5 card, hostap 0.4.5 driver, 2.4.30 kernel with
Wireless Extensions v18 patch (default is v16 in 2.4.30, but that doesn't
support WPA). Version of wpa_supplicant is 0.4.5 (I am not exactly sure
now, it might have been 0.4.6, anyway something recent).

Here is the output of wpa_supplicant:
