The wpa_supplicant configuration was really helpful and I could
immeaditely see the problem. The network uses IEEE 802.1x
authentication with dynamic WEP keys. I'm really sorry to tell you
that it's not supported by N800/N810. If the network used TKIP or AES
as encryption method, N800/N810 would support that out of the box.
