I dont know if you resolved this & I am speaking up late (just looked at
your mail) but from your dmesg, it looks to me like your wireless is fine &
the problem is on the WAP side.  Is there a mac filter on the WAP?  It looks
like you are sending or attempting to send an auth request & are getting no
response.  The first thing that comes to my mind is that there is a mac
filter on the WAP & it is ignoring your request.  second thought is that
your wireless encryption is sending a malformed request.

given the dmesg log, it looks like your chip is recognized & you are
scanning.  You even found a WAP to communicate with.

regards
