Morning everyone!
I finally got RSN working between my gateway and my notebook.
a) the gateway
D-Link DWL-520, PRI 1.1.4, STA 1.8.3 (both volatile)           
Linux 2.6.5-rc3         
hostap cvs 
hostapd cvs

wpa=2 in hostapd.conf

b) the notebook
IBM Atheros a/b/g mini-PCI card (PCI-ID 168c:1014) 
Linux 2.6
madwifi-WPA cvs
wpa_supplicant cvs


How to get it work:

start wpa_supplicant

_after_ it giving the message "wpa_driver_madwifi_set_wpa: enabled=1",
do "iwpriv ath0 wpa 2" to tell madwifi to do WPA2 instead of WPA1.

then just wait a little, and it should work. It does here.

Regards, Wilfried
