Your driver/hardware has to announce its WPA capabilities via the wext
interface (the driver needs to support v18 or greater). The easiest way
is to install kernel 2.16, the included ipw2200 should work out of the box.


P.S.: If that does not work, post your versions of NM, wpa_supplicant
and a log (run NetworkManager --no-daemon).

Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
