WPA works with D-Link Router, but not Belkin Router


Hi! I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 that has the Intel ipw2200 b/g wireless adapter. I'm using Slackware 11, along with the 2.6.17.13 kernel. Downloaded the latest ipw2200 firmware and put them in /lib/firmware (for that is the Slackware way), installed the latest version of wpa_supplicant (thanks to Alien Bob), and proceeded to setup a wireless connection with WPA encryption to a D-Link 524 at home. Everything worked fine.

Then I go into work, where we have a Belkin F5D8230-4 router. Along with WPA, the router has MAC Address Control enabled. If I turn off WPA but leave the MAC Address Control enabled, I can connect to the router. If I turn WPA on and MAC Address Control off, it does not work. I AM typing the passphrase in correct and it's in quotes in the wpa_supplicant file. Also, I was using Ubuntu before and I had the same problem, so I'm fairly certain this is a wpa_supplicant problem.

Here's the output I get when I run wpa_supplicant (it repeats until I kill it):

Code:
Trying to associate with 00:11:50:2b:8d:59 (SSID='CStoreIT' freq=0 MHz)
CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys
Associated with 00:11:50:2b:8d:59

-dd shows a little more information (which repeats until I kill it):

Can anyone please help me? It's annoying not having wireless access at work. Thanks.
