I'm pulling my hair out as I read this email. I tried getting this working 
this weekend. Compaq Presario with an Intel ipw2200. Seemed pretty safe. 
Wanted to get it running with WPA, same as you. I never got it to work and 
just ended up returning the wireless router (it was malfunctioning anyway, 
resetting even on the cabled computers) and giving up on it. It was a sad 
situation. I tried everything, including Ubuntu (which has some good 
how-tos), but nothing worked. I eventually I talked to some people on 
#wireless who said WPA wasn't ready for primetime on Linux. I don't know.
