Angry I can't configure Dell1390 wireless

Hi! All

I canít configure how to make my Dell1390 wireless to work. Please help. I install CentOS435 on my HP DV6000 laptop and used dkms-ndiswrapper version 1.38 for wireless. Installed ndiswrapper look OK and I see my wireless light on. When I start configure wireless, I got problem as described below:

[root@localhost ~]# iwconfig

wlan0 IEEE 802.11g ESSIDff/any Nickname:"localhost.localdomain"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Bit Rate=54 Mb/s Tx-Power:32 dBm
RTS thr=2347 B Fragment thr=2346 B
Encryption key: off
Power Management: off
Link Quality:0 Signal level:0 Noise level:0
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0

eth0 no wireless extensions.

sit0 no wireless extensions.

[root@localhost ~]# iwlist wlan0 scan I saw my access point @ Cell2

wlan0 Scan completed :

Cell 02 - Address: 00:14:6C:49:9D:16
Protocol:IEEE 802.11g
Frequency:2.437 GHz (Channel 6)
Quality:15/100 Signal level:-86 dBm Noise level:-96 dBm
Encryption keyn
Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 11 Mb/s; 6 Mb/s
12 Mb/s; 24 Mb/s; 36 Mb/s; 9 Mb/s; 18 Mb/s
48 Mb/s; 54 Mb/s
IE: WPA Version 1
Group Cipher : TKIP
Pairwise Ciphers (1) : TKIP
Authentication Suites (1) : PSK

And then I modified wpa_supplicant file as following /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant:


psk="Here I am"

And configured this file /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant as following:

# wlan0 and wifi0
# INTERFACES="-iwlan0 -iwifi0"
# ndiswrapper and prism
# DRIVERS="-Dndiswrapper -Dprism"

I use Network config bu GUI mode and see the error like that:

Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device wlan0 ; Invalid argument.

Determining IP information for wlan0... failed; no link present. Check cable?

And then I use this command
[root@localhost ~]# dmesg | grep ndiswrapper

ndiswrapper version 1.38 loaded (preempt=no,smp=yes)
ndiswrapper (link_pe_images:577): fixing KI_USER_SHARED_DATA address in the driver
ndiswrapper: driver bcmwl5 (Broadcom,10/12/2006, loaded
ndiswrapper: using IRQ 11
usbcore: registered new driver ndiswrapper
ndiswrapper (add_wep_key:820): adding encryption key 1 failed (C0010015)

I really donít know what going on here. I tried to google on internet for long time but did not make my wireless working. I tried to disable any feature on my router but It did not work at all. Any ideas will be appreciate it.

Thanks and Best Regards,
