Hm, seems like the orinoco interface does not include the strings
802.11, READY or ESSID, right? What does 'ifconfig eth1' (if eth1
matches your orinoco card) look like?

Make sure that /etc/default/wpasupplicant contains the right
settings like:

OPTIONS="-Dwext -i ath0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf"

Then check the setup in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf. (Re)start
wpasupplicant running 'Restart wpasupplicant' and run 'dhclient
ath0' afterwards. And of course: Take a look at the syslog (run
'tlog' to watch it).
