Is it the distro OR wpasupplicant???
Is the distro causing this problem or wpasupplicant? I know the Debian repositories have been problematic for alot of people lately so I'm uneasy about loading a more recent version of wpasupplicant. I've been thru all the manpages as well as most of the threads here and on mepis.org/mepislovers.org but still haven't come across a solution. Is there another distro that works better for WPA? I like Linux, but if I can't have any wireless access with my laptop I will definitely be less inclined to use it.
I have had similar issues with my Fedora Core 5 system, it turned out that NetworkManager was installed and chaging all the config around; it would pull the rug from under the connection to my LAN if it detected anyone else's lan in the vicinity. I took it off.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
What do you get when you run /sbin/ifconfig ? There is a common problem with DNS where the client machine takes ages to find websites and often results in timeouts. Just verify that you have a connection in ifconfig first.
