Wireless card fails to connect to encrypted networks


Hey all,
I just installed SLED 10 SP 1 onto a Dell Latitude D820 and having trouble getting wireless working. It detected the card fine (Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG) and lets me search for networks but can't seem to connect to any network that has an encryption. Unencrypted networks seem to be fine, however.

This has really got me stumped. It shows all encryption types as available in the options... what's going on?

I'm running into this problem again on a Thinkpad T61.

I already mentioned the card, which is an Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG. The networks it's confirmed having trouble with have WPA or WPA2 encryptions. I haven't been able to test WEP.

This is really strange. The 3945 is supposed to be fully supported. Also, the card works fine under Ubuntu.

I'm using NetworkManager and have the following modules installed:

ipw3945d
ipw3945-kmp-smp
ipw-firmware
microcode_ctl
wlan-kmp-smp

Is wpa_supplicant installed?
What's /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf look like?

Yes, wpa_supplicant is installed. I left the laptop at work, though, so I won't be able to read you the conf until Monday.
