In my case the lights blink together in equal time intervals.  It seems that 
the card is somehow connected to the router but it can't get a valid ip 
address.  I don't know what I am doing wrong.

Here is the output of iwconfig and ifconfig after issuing the commands: 
ifconfig ath0, iwconfig ath0 channel 1, wpa_supplicant 
-c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -Dmadwifi -iath0 -d

Any hints?
