Well, I know the problem now. The wi driver doesn't support WPA, even though the firmware on the card in question (and probably a few other prism based cards) does support WPA. I found a thread in the FreeBSD-Stable mailing list from just a few days ago that clarifies this.
As the second link indicates, it doesn't look like Sam has the time or energy to resolve the situation, seems like it's back to WeP for me....
I should have paid closer attention to the capabilities that the driver was reporting instead of assuming that because the card supported it... well live and learn.
