Got my wpa_supplicant working, even with WPA2.
But I'm still having a problem with hidden SSID. In this case wpa_supplicant fails to associate to my AP. My wpa_supplicant.conf file looks like
Code:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=wheel
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1
network={
   ssid="{my APs SSID}"
   bssid=00:04:0E:50:CF:7A
   scan_ssid=1
   #psk="o9k2fMw47z567"
   psk={very confidential}
   proto=WPA RSN
   key_mgmt=WPA-PSK WPA-EAP
   pairwise=CCMP TKIP
   group=CCMP TKIP WEP104 WEP40
}

This works like a champ as long as SSID is submitted by the AP. But it fails when turning the AP to hidden SSID. With #iwlist eth1 scan I get
Code:
eth1      Scan completed :
          Cell 01 - Address: {MAC number}
                    ESSID:"<hidden>"
                    Protocol:IEEE 802.11bg
                    Mode:Master
                    Channel:11
                    Encryption key:on
                    Bit Rate:54 Mb/s
                    Extra: Rates (Mb/s): 1 2 5.5 6 9 11 12 18 22 24 36 48 54
                    Signal level=-40 dBm 
                    Extra:rsn_ie={very confidential}
                    Extra: Last beacon: 1341ms ago

What's wrong? Anybody there who could help?
Thanks in advance for any hint.
