You could start by providing some more details of the issue or a pointer
to such description (like a full URL to a thread discussing this or a
specific bug in Launchpad). As far as this mailing list is concerned,
getting a verbose debug log from wpa_supplicant (both success and
failure case) and description of which driver you are using would also
be quite helpful.
