connecting to WPA wireless network with ipw2100

Hello all!

I just aquired an IBM Thinkpad X31 laptop and have to work out the
wireless (amongst other things). The firmware (firmware-ipw2x00) and
drivers are installed and working (I think).

dojo:~# lspci | grep -i wireless
02:02.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless LAN 2100 3B Mini PCI Adapter (rev 04)

I'm using wicd from the lenny-backports since I had very good
experiences with wicd on my other machines. However, if I try and
connect to my wireless - WPA-TKIP, Mixed mode (B and G) - I keep
getting the message: "Connection failed: Could not contact the
wireless access point." I'm positive the WAP is up and running since
I'm writing this here from my other machine through it.

Syslog contains some dhclient messages that look like this:

00:57:52 dhclient: Listening on LPF/eth2/00:04:23:96:55:2a
00:57:52 dhclient: Sending on   LPF/eth2/00:04:23:96:55:2a
00:57:52 dhclient: Sending on   Socket/fallback

And that's all that sticks out to me...

Any hints/tips/clues much appreciated, let me know if you need any
more info.

TIA, Sebi
