wpa_supplicant and ipw2100 problems in SUSE 9.2

So far I've been able to figure out how to get SUSE 9.2 up and running with all my hardware, (thanks to the search function on these forums) but this one is stumping me. Really stumping me. I've been using my Latitude D800 with no problems with an Intel Pro Wireless 2100 using WEP. Since WEP is so easily crackable now, I upgraded to a router that supports WPA. I've used YaST to add wpa_supplicant and set my PSK (so I don't screw up anything) but for some reason I cannot connect to my router. I can see it if I scan, and evidently authenticate with it, but no connection is established, and I don't get an IP. I do get the message in wpa_cli:

WPA: Key negotiation completed with (mac address of router)
WPA: Key negotiation completed with (mac address of router)
WPA: Key negotiation completed with (mac address of router)
repeat forever

Also, my wireless network activity applet shows a green bar for 4 seconds, dead for half a second, then solid green again for 4 seconds, dead again, rinse, repeat.

WEP and unencrypted both work fine, and Windows can use WPA with no problems, so I know it's not the hardware. This is the only thing keeping me from using Linux at home full time.

Thanks in advance,

I'm an idiot. Sorry everyone. Could a mod please move this to "Linux Wireless Networking?"
