    You can connect using wpa_supplicant. First you need to set up a config file, usually in the /etc/wpa_supplicant folder. For examples of config files, check the documentation, usually found in /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples. For WPA TKIP encryption, here is an example>
    Code:
    # WPA-PSK/TKIP
    
    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    
    network={
    	ssid="example wpa-psk network"
    	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    	proto=WPA
    	pairwise=TKIP
    	group=TKIP
    	psk="secret passphrase"
    }
    Of course, you need to change the ssid and psk.

    Back from vacation.
    My colleagues have made it work. I don't know how exactly but after I've settled back in and take knowledge of it I'll post back.

    Forgot to mention.
    After all of that we went with an Atheros card.

    We put the card in an Ubuntu machine, looked at the wpa_supplicant.conf file that was generated, changed the ssid, username, password info and copied the settings to the imedia setup.

    Code:
    network={
                    ssid="myssid"
                    identity="username"
                    password="password"
                    key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
                    eap=PEAP
                    proto=RSN
    }
