Thx for quick reply. I tried using the generic wireless extensions as you
suggested, but I still get the same error. Below I attach the debug output
from both my attempts, both for ipw drivers and for wext drivers. After the
error message "No suitable AP found", the application repeats the process in
finding an AP, endlessly. The AP is configured to not broadcast the ESSID,
but the ESSID is included in the wpa_supplicant.conf.

At the top of the output I've included the command. Just to clarify myself:
I have a intel 2200BG in the computer, and I have used the ipw
driver+wpa_supplicant under the 2.6.12 kernel without problem.
To me, it seems as if there is an error when setting the encryption, but I'm
unsure. And I definitely don't know how to fix it. 
Anyone???

Below is the output when I use the ipw driver:
