I have actually never tested AR5211-based cards with madwifi, so I'm not
fully sure what to expect from their TKIP encryption behavior. Based on
the debug log, it looks like the first authentication was actually
completed successfully, so if the AP is working correctly, the client
was at least able to decrypt one packet correctly. However, the AP
seemed to disconnect the client immediately after this. It is unclear
whether the reply message (EAPOL-Key 2/2) was sent out correctly.

Do you happen to have a wireless sniffer that you could use to capture
the negotiation? It would be useful to see what exactly is being sent
during the Group Key handshake.
