 as far as i can tell, i'm not doing anything out of the ordinary.  wpa_supplicant is run at boot time.  i haven't made any modifications to the rc.inet1 or rc.wireless scripts.  i've only edited (as root) my wpa_supplicant.conf file to include my home essid and psk.  chmodding it 600 prevented me from getting on my network, presumably because the file was not being read.  reversing the chmod corrected the problem. as far as i can tell, i'm not doing anything out of the ordinary.  wpa_supplicant is run at boot time.  i haven't made any modifications to the rc.inet1 or rc.wireless scripts.  i've only edited (as root) my wpa_supplicant.conf file to include my home essid and psk.  chmodding it 600 prevented me from getting on my network, presumably because the file was not being read.  reversing the chmod corrected the problem.

 +//__September 9th 2008__//
 +Using the trunk madwifi drivers with 2.6.26 kernel and wpa_supplicant 0.6.4, I have to use 'wpakey'.  It's a program shipped with madwifi.
 +
 +wpakey -i ath0 -w
 +
 +This enables wpa and allows wpa_supplicant to authenticate with my access point.
