Default Problems connecting to WPA2 networks

Hi,

I'm having difficulty connecting to a WPA2 enterprise network. The
system is fine connecting to standard WPA and open networks, but refuses
to connect to my school's WPA2 network.
We tried with another machine using different wireless chipset and that
works fine.
When connecting my syslog fills with the following messages:

Oct 4 08:14:40 debian-eeepc kernel: [ 265.678837] wlan0: direct probe

Regarding the wireless network device inside my netbook, here is output
of lspci:
01:00.0 Network controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR9285 Wireless
Network Adapter (PCI-Express) (rev 01)

When I google Atheros Ar9285 with WPA2 I learn that there are problems
with this device. I came across the following link:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1244686

I should also say that I tested this machine with a live version of
ubuntu off the cd, with kernel 2.6.35 and experienced exactly the same
problems. I'm using wpasupplicant to connect, as well as tried with the
gui on ubuntu. No luck with any.

I'm running debian Testing (Squeeze), and kernel version:
Linux debian-eeepc 2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Sat Oct 30 22:47:19 UTC 2010 i686
GNU/Linux

I believe a possible solution is to use backports as suggested by the
page I pasted I believe. Is this the best solution? If so how can I
apply it to a debian system?
Does it look like there is a problem with the atheros drivers for this
device...?

Finally, if required below my name is my Wpa_supplicant configuration
along with my /etc/network/interfaces file.

If anyone can assist me with this issue I'd greatly appreciate it!

Cheers,
Dan
