Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) for ath0 Suse 9.0

Hi !
I am using Netgear WG511T card under Suse 9.0. when I try to connect using
ifup ath0 I get the error :

ERROR: command 'iwconfig ath0 key XXXXXXXXXXXXX restricted' returned
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device ath0 ; Invalid argument.

lsmod shows :

wlan 103644 1 [ath_pci ath_rate_sample]
ath_hal 133808 1 [ath_pci ath_rate_sample]

and ifconfig shows :

check the docs for madwifi and see whether the wireless extensions of your kernel is high enough. Also paste your interfaces file if thats ok.
