Is even the key accepted by the driver? I thought the client needed to
generate a key from the passphrase, then do a 4-way handshake with the
AP using that key, to get a temporal key, and then finally program the
temporal key into the driver. (Then it has to do a group handshake to
get the group key as well, although WPA2 does this during the second
half of the 4-way handshake. Either way, the client needs to program
the group temporal key into the driver as well.)
And in any case, if you don't do the 4-way handshake after associating,
then the AP will either disconnect you, or not let you pass any traffic.
