Default F8: Broadcom 4311 won't connect; deauthentication reason=7 ??

On Fedora 8 I'm having trouble getting my 4311 to connect to the access
point. I've posted on the b43 list, but it may not be a driver problem,
but someplace else in the driver stack.


uname -r
2.6.23.9-85.fc8

lspci -n
04:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Broadcom Corporation BCM94311MCG

cat /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-wlan0
DEVICE=wlan0
BOOTPROTO=dhcp
ONBOOT=yes
TYPE=Wireless
ESSID=belkin

All the right kmods seem to be loaded:

lsmod | grep b43
b43 133221 0
rfkill 9297 2 b43
mac80211 115789 1 b43
input_polldev 7369 1 b43

and the iw tools work OK:

iwconfig wlan0

FWIW, the laptop is dual boot. Vista connects to the access point.
