Anyone know what the following debug message within a
"wpa_cli' session equates to after start
'wpa_supplicant'?

<2>Authentication with 00:00:00:00:00:00 timed out.
<2>Trying to associate with SSID 'WLANHQ'
<2>WPA: Failed to parse WPA IE from association info


I think the issue centers on ESSID Broadcast being
Disabled... anyway here's the setup:

conf file -->

  ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
  ctrl_interface_group=root
  eapol_version=1
  # ESSID Broadcast Disabled
  ap_scan=2  
  fast_reauth=1
  network={
         ssid="WLAN"
         scan_ssid=1
         key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
         pairwise=CCMP TKIP
         group=CCMP TKIP
         psk="passphrase"
  }

iwconfig -->

   wlan0     IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:off/any  
             Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.437 GHz  Access
