But all of the replies in those threads are so worthless, I wouldn't even bother looking at them. Could you start wireshark or tcpdump while trying to associate with an AP, and post the resulting .cap file here? Have you tried spoofing with another NIC or operating system?

One thing that happened with my card when i tried to associate was i had to add the AP's MAC to the command for my wireless card to connect
Also if you are trying to connect from a GUI, i suggest using CLI instead.
i used this to connect once i cracked the WEP key:
iwconfig wlan0 essid <essid> ap <ap's mac>
iwconfig wlan0 key (open) <key>
this may be different on your card though.

After downloading the madwifi drivers, make sure you read the installation instructions... and you may have to restart for the changes to take effect.

I still have a hard time once in a wile when I try to connect to any AP, but I do not worry, because that laptop is used for cracking mostly.
Uninstall your drivers then reinstall the latest Mad WiFi drivers.
Also try to use --mac instead of -m. I do not know why but it works better for me. I have only ran into your problem a few times since I have been using the command --mac, even though it is the same command and does the same thing.
Don't ask me why it seems to work.

Had to revert back to ipw3945 from both latest Ubuntu and Backtrack.
