I've seen the same problem (not being able to connect to this particular
network) with iwl4965 (laptop of someone else).

** Summary changed:

- [hardy] iwl3945 + wpasupplicant fails to connect to university network. regression from gutsy (ipw3945+wpasupplicant)
+ [hardy] iwl3945/iwl4965 + wpasupplicant fails to connect to university network. regression from gutsy (ipw3945+wpasupplicant)

** Description changed:

- [hardy] iwl3945 + wpasupplicant fails to connect to university network.
- regression from gutsy (ipw3945+wpasupplicant) which worked fine.

  wpa_supplicant.conf :
  
  network={
  ssid="MAASnet"
  key_mgmt=IEEE8021X
  wep_key0=67521641120849428492308341
  phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
  identity="" #fill in
  password="" #fill in
  }
  
  Here's a part of the output from running ""sudo wpa_supplicant
  -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -i wlan0 -D wext -d"" which
  might be relevant :
  
  EAPOL: Setting dynamic WEP key: unicast keyidx 3 len 13
  wpa_driver_wext_set_key: alg=1 key_idx=3 set_tx=128 seq_len=0 key_len=13
  ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
  Driver did not support SIOCSIWENCODEEXT
  EAPOL: Failed to set WEP key to the  driver.
  
  I'ts probably not a microcode error because I followed : 
  http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/?n=fw_error_report and I'm not seeing "Microcode SW error detected" in my dmesg.
