Trouble with RTL8188cus wireless usb - WPA Authentication/Association Failed

Good morning all,

Been using Arch Linux (August 2012 32bit edition) on my PIII 1GHz, 1GB DDR, 60GB IDE HD and Intel Video Graphic.

I'm using an usb wireless dongle made by Pluscom, which is RTl8188cus chipset and I have successfully installed Arch via wireless. It is only AFTER the installation, I cannot get my wireless device to work.

Why is that it is working via Arch Live CD and not AFTER the installation?

I can see wlan0 by iwconfig and I have configured using wpa_passphrase, ip link set wlan0 up, wpa_supplicant, and it failed after I use dhcpcd wlan0 with an error message saying WPA Authentication/Association Failed.

There are no mistakes in the wpa_supplicant file. I have used exact same settings DURING the Arch Live CD, which worked.

I noticed during the Arch Live CD, it used rtl8192cu firmware, so I modprobe rtl8192cu and nothing.

It there a bug with this device?

Any suggestions.
