I am using networkmanager on FC6 with the ipw3945 driver (1.2.0 + ucode 1.14.2).
I created a accesspoint with hostapd and a rt2500usb based device.
I am using WPA-PSK + TKIP for it.
When I try to connect networkmanager ask me for the passphrase, I enter it and it trys to connect, but it never does this.
hostapd prints this message: "No WPA/RSN IE in association request"
seems that nm/wpa_supplicant does not send all data which is required by the ap? I tryed windows on the same system and it works. (it ask for passphrase and connects to the ap). I tryed unencrypted but it fails here too (timeout because took longer than 40s). With the unencrypted ap sometimes it *does* associate but nm does not regognice it. (iwconfig shows this) and if I give it a ip I can ping the ap. Whats going on here? I have tryed everything (blamed the ap first, but than tryed windows and it works).
Thx in advance for any hints/help.
If you need more info feel free to ask.

Can you connect to that AP with plain wpa_supplicant and the 'wext'

yes but it keeps connecting/disconnection ("disconnect event remove keys") and sometimes it becomes stable and stays connected. while nm never manages to connect. and when using plain wpa_supplicant I do not get "No WPA/RSN IE in association request" in hostapd output.
