Could you please re-run this with full debugging output from
wpa_supplicant (-dd on command line)? Prism54 driver did not use to
support WPA in client mode, but there has been some comments on that
working with some changes. I have not tested this myself nor have I
heard many clear success reports, so I don't know what exactly the
current status of the WPA support in the driver is.
