    Default WPA2 getting no where

    Okay I've been googling for a day and half and I don't seem to be getting anywhere. Im using backtrack4 installed to HD on Vmware workstation 6.5.1. Im using the WUSB54GR. I'm logged in as root, so I don't have to do sudo right? I can see my network, non broadcasting WPA2-Personal with airdump-ng and kismet. Now i've extracted, wpa_supplicant-0.6.9.tar to my desktop, which i got from wiki. I didn't know where to put it so i just copied the wpa_supplicant.conf into /etc and this is what i have in the file

    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    ctrl_interface_group=0
    ap_scan=2

    network={
    ssid="soapdish"
    proto=RSN
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    pairwise=CCMP TKIP
    group=CCMP TKIP
    psk="tastesbad"
    }

    I then run
    wpa_supplicant -d -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0 -Dwext

    I can't get you the exact error message because I'm on method two editing the interface file, i seem to be getting more results from this.
    /etc/network/interfaces

    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback

    auto wlan0
    iface wlan0 inet static
    wpa-driver wext
    wpa-conf managed
    wpa-ssid soapdish
    wpa-ap-scan 2
    wpa-proto WPA RSN
    wpa-pairwise CCMP
    wpa-group CCMP
    wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
    wpa-psk bab8aeb43c9b0776db7d92f727429f9f13934504979d041359 5e1cad4ce2b81e
    address 192.168.1.2
    netmask 255.255.255.0
    broadcast 255.255.255.255
    gateway 192.168.1.1
    dns-nameservers 172.16.0.18

    then i do
    /etc/init.d/networking restart

    It seems like it configures correctly but when i do iwconfig it's always Access Point: Not-Associated
    And if i do iwlist scan i get no results from wlan0
    I've also tried using dhcp instead of static, but i get horrible results from that.

    DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 6
    DHCPDISCOVER on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67 interval 13
    it does this about 5 times and then quits

    I'm stumped.
    total noob too..
