I was unable to connect until I followed something said here in the ML. The same thing has come over again more than once, including the solution. You have to (at least I had to): iwconfig eth0 power off (Yes, it's off, don't ask me why, because I don't understand it) I'm using OM2008.8 with updates on flash and debian on the SD. Entering this I was able to connect with both (only tried once with OM2008 though). I use wicd with debian, select the network to connect, give details in it's UI. Then, while it is connecting I switch to the terminal and enter the aforementioned comand and it connects. If I don't enter the command it sits there forever without really conecting. The only but is that wicd-client (the UI) is veeeery slow. I don't know what happens exactly, but after connecting I can kill or even minimise wicd-client and everything else works more or less fluid. (midori, apt-get,...). But wicd-client itself is barely bearable in my sistem :-(. Even TangoGPS or other suposedly heavier applications are much faster than wicd-client.
