Description

I'm using madwifi from trunk and can't connect to my WPA2 ap using rates above 18M. All rates from 1M to 18M works fine, but for instance 48M or 54M gives me:

==> wpa_supplicant.log <==

as soon as i switch the rate to 18M or below, i got:

The distance between station and ap is pretty short, so i think it depends not on low signal.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
