Hi. Thanks for trying to help. I fixed the problem myself (and
demonstrated I couldn't do a prudent thinking). The mistake is trying to
use shared key in an open-systems wireless network. I managed to get it
right by having

authomode open

after managed to learn the difference of shared and open authmode and
how to tell the mode of local network.
