Try starting "wp_supplicant" in debug mode to make the log more verbose 
about that error. It seems failing at some point of the authentication.

Also, try to lower the security a bit by choosing WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA2-
PSK (AES+TKIP) instead just AES. Stronger encryption requires better 
coberture so devices can "dialogue" smoothly.
