Passphrase issues:

I have noticed that with wireless sometimes it works better to use the password hash in the wpa_supplicant.conf instead of the ascii text. You can use the wpa_passphrase utility (I don't know if this is included in the GTA02 or not as I don't have one) to generate the hash for the passphrase.

techiem2@escape-pod ~ $ wpa_passphrase MYWIFI "my passphrase" 
network={
        ssid="MYWIFI"
        #psk="my passphrase"
        psk=a4c08e767704a66d3fb27d4bf072e2da279f76adc568722b9a6f97964b982620
}

Of course you would probably want to redirect output to the end of your wpa_supplicant.conf (wpa_passphrase MYWIFI "my passphrase">>/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf).
