Code:
# wpa_passphrase IO-Media "your passkey" >> /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
this will append the following to your /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

Code:
network={
     ssid="IO-Media"
     psk=<some hex string>
}
from there add the following lines to make it look like this:

Code:
network={
     ssid="IO-Media"
     psk=<some hex string>
     key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
     proto=WPA
}
Now you should be able to connect

Code:
# iwconfig wlan0 essid IO-Media
# wpa_supplicant -B -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dwext
# dhclinet wlan0
If wpa_supplicant is already running you will see an error message, you can ignore that. After running dhclient you should see it return an IP Address, at that point you are ll set.
Thank you! U saved my life!

Lets see if I can get WICD to work now....
