You would be better off using a released (ie. non-rc) 2.6.28 kernel, which can
be acquired through a Debian kernel snapshot package for your system.  This is
described in the "orinoco" Debian Wiki page previously mentioned to you.

Why are you specifying these options?  The version of wpa_supplicant in Lenny
(0.6.4) does not require ap_scan=2, this is only necessary for wpa_supplicant
versions <= 0.5.7 with the orinoco driver.  Also, ctrl_interface_group is
deprecated.  These configuration options should be removed unless absolutely

Please try using a 2.6.28 kernel image from kernel-archive.buildserver.net and
ensure you have acquired and installed the necessary Agere station firmware
(agere_sta_fw.bin).  Refer to the orinoco page on the Debian Wiki for

At the very least, verify "WPA-PSK supported" is shown in the kernel ring
buffer (dmesg) after loading the orinoco driver.
