I have a very similar problem with an Orinoco PCMCIA card. There were
a number of suggestions here a couple of weeks ago, and on
debian-laptop just afterwards, but no solution yet. One thing I haven't
yet tried is getting the latest driver.
Does your card connect if you temporarily turn off encryption at the
access point? Mine does (by manual 'ifup eth0'). If it does we may
have the same complaint...
