Default wpa_supplicant won't connect to AP

I'm trying to get my laptop (with an intel wireless mini-pci card) to connect to a WPA enabled wireless network. I'm running 7.1-PRERELEASE (tracking -STABLE).

This is my wpa_supplicant.conf file:

Quote:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=wheel

network={
ssid="CITFRONT"
proto=WPA
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=TKIP
group=TKIP
psk="CG*******"
}
And here's the output from wpa_supplicant, run with -dd to get debug info:

Quote:

I'm guessing that the real problem is "skip - SSID mismatch" but I'm not sure what that means. It obviously sees the wireless network, but is refusing to connect. If I boot off of an Ubuntu Hardy CD, I can connect, using that psk key.

Does anyone have any ideas?
