WPA Supplicant issues


Sorry for the long post. Also, I have posted this to the Zenwalk forums, but I'm hoping to get additional assistance.

I am a newbie to Linux. I've been playing with it for a while, but not regularly. I bought a Sony Vaio VGN-FS743/W and decided to dual boot. I decided on Zenwalk because it's Slackware based and installs with the 2.6 kernel. The laptop has a Intel 2200 wireless adapter and I'm using a Linksys WRT54G wireless router and a cable modem.

I was able to get wireless up and running by installing the ieee80211 network stack, the driver for the card and the firmware update. I can get online if there is no security in use. But since security is part of the reason I am switching to Linux, this won't cut it. I then configured the router to use WPA with TKIP. I then followed the instructions on the Intel Pro Wireless 2200 + Slackware tutorial for the WPA portion. It seemed to install correctly. I then do

Code:
ifconfig eth1 up
wpa_supplicant -ieth1 -Dwext -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf &
I think I get connected to my wireless, but after about 5 minutes, I start receiving messages like this.

Code:
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
recvfrom(netlink): No buffer space available
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
l2_packet_receive - recvfrom: Network is down
IOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
l2_packet_receive - recvfrom: Network is down
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument

Trying to associate with 00:14:bf:8d:6c:cd (SSID='fritznet' freq=0 MHz)

WPA: Failed to set PTK to the driver.

I do an iwconfig and get the following
Code:
lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

eth1      IEEE 802.11g  ESSID:"fritznet"  Nickname:"zenwalk"

          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:128   Missed beacon:2
I also attempted to get an IP address from the router, but get the following from an ifconfig.
Code:
eth1      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:13:CE:29:33:1A  
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

          UP LOOPBACK RUNNING  MTU:16436  Metric:1
          RX packets:18 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:18 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:0 
          RX bytes:1624 (1.5 Kb)  TX bytes:1624 (1.5 Kb)
In case you need it, here's my wpa_supplicant.conf file.
Code:
network={
	ssid="fritznet"
	scan_ssid=1
	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
	proto=WPA
	pairwise=TKIP
	group=TKIP
	#psk="mySecretKey"
	psk=mySecretKeyBytes
	priority=2
}
Thanks in advance for any help.

ifconfig eth1 up
wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ieth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd &
network={
ssid="fritznet"
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
proto=WPA
pairwise=TKIP
group=TKIP
#psk="mySecretKey"
psk=mySecretKeyBytes
priority=2
}
you can take teh option -dd that is the mode verbose
But I test in france the solution but has an error key cipher lenght (13) on WMP54G v4
