problem associating

Hi everyone,

I have a problem to get my laptop to associate with my AP. It was
working, and sometimes is working, but now it is completely
broken and I never get any connection.

rtl8192se card (IBM Thinkpad)
linux 2.6.0-rc2 (also rc1) with in kernel driver (compiled from git)
Debian sid uptodate

I am running wpa_supplicant -d -Dnl80211 -iwlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -f wpa_supp.log

where the config file lists two entries. I get the attached
wpa_supp.log file. The connection never succeeds, it seems that
there is no authentication rsponse. I have trimmed it down to
2 scan result updates, as it keeps repeating after that forever.

The interesting thing is that yesterday it was working on and off,
at times, running for a few minutes then hanging again.
Today, no hope at all to get any connection.

Is there anything I can do?

Best wishes

Norbert
