I got some more clues by setting my Wireless Access Point to unsecured
mode for a test and succeeded in connecting to it without any
problems. So it's a WPA issue. So at least I know that now (and I know
that the firmware and drivers are loaded and working).

Does the chipset need to have built-in support WPA for it to work or
does it only depend on the configuration of wpasupplicant et al, I

I'm running Linux 2.6.26-2-686 by the way. Gonna compile a custom
kernel for this machine though using the 2.6.32 kernel from backports.

Any tests/hints appreciated...

TIA, Sebi
