Ah, this looks promising. Please attach full "dmesg" output, or if it is
too long, everything starting a few lines before the first WARNING and
ending at "cut here".
Also, could you try connecting using "iw" and sending the associated
logs? Like this:
apt-get install iproute iw
# in one terminal:
iw event -t
# in another terminal:
ip link set wlan0 up
iw dev wlan0 connect -w <SSID> key d:0:<key>
dhclient wlan0; # or use the usual "ip" magic to set a static IP
ip link set wlan0 down
dmesg | tail
Thanks and hope that helps,
