Thanks. The link is definitely up and the router is sending packets
back to the card
but they are garbled. I think I may have messed up the encryption? How
do the Linksys and Netgear routers convert the ascii passphrase into a
PSK?

On the laptop, I used pbkdf2_sha1 to convert an ascii password into a
256-bit PSK:

pbkdf2_sha1(passphrase, ssid, strlen(ssid), 4096, psk, 32);

Then I used the first 128 bits of psk as the encryption key, the next
64 bits as the receive MIC key and the last 64 bits as the transmit
key (supplicant mode) to set the key in the NDIS driver.

Some more info on the packets received from the router:
Each packet's ethertype is unknown (0x888e). They are 113 bytes long
and they all start with:
0103 005f fe00 8900 2000 0000 0000 0000


Thanks.
