Ahh yes. Not my access point (at my girlfriends) and it is set to shared. The error should probably not have said: SoftMAC: Open Authentication with 00;00 failed, error code: 13 But instead: SoftMAC: Open Authentication with 00;00 failed: Requested authentication algorithm not supported (try open mode instead of shared key) I would happily send a patch for that if you want. > If you have administrative access to the AP you may want to disable > shared key authentication and go back to open mode.

I've no idea why ipw3945 works and zd1211 does not work with "shared key" access points, although if it's a design decision it should probably be propagated to the user via NetworkManager.
