Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: linux-generic

With Kubuntu 8.04, AVM Fritz Wlan USB Stick V1.1, ndiswrapper, AVM Windows driver and Linux kernel 2.6.24-16.18-generic, I cannot connect to my access point using encryption WPA2.
Network is recognized, knetworkmanager tries to connect, connects, disconnects again, and so on. Same with wpa_gui.

No clear network binding is reached. No connection to the network

Connection without encryption is possible.
Looks like an WLAN WPA authentication and network association problem with kernel 2.6.24-16.

Using the same configuration and only booting the old kernel
2.6.22-14-generic, instead of kernel 2.6.24-16, the connection works
just fine with WPA2 encryption.

I banned the not working AVM Linux Driver module 'fwlanusb' coming with
the kernel 2.6.24-16-generic by putting it on /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.

Network is fine when using a network cable.

ndisgtk 0.8.3-1
ndiswrapper-common 1.50-1ubuntu1
ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 1.50-1ubuntu1
wpasupplicant 0.6.0 + 0.5.8-0ubuntu1
fwlan.inf  AVM-Windows-Driver Version1 2 / 2 8 / 2 0 0 6 , 2 . 0 . 6 . 1 6 4 7
