try the latest version, found at sourgeforge. You will have to compile
though. I found a deb-package "somewhere" but cant figure out/remember
where.

Thanks for the idea, I tried this version and it handles wpa, but it
still does not connect. I think this cisco card is not so well supported
by linux and maybe I should buy a pcmcia card. Does anyone have an idea
which would be the best? BTW thanks for the help!
