WPA-PSK-only probably[tm] worked fine with the version that we shipped with 
Om2008.{8|9} but it even had problems to connect to unencrypted networks. WEP 
may be deprecated but is still heavily used.
I looked into a later version which gladly accepted supplied passwords but did 
not do anything with it. Also, theoretically it should support everything that 
wpa_supplicant supports but it filtered networks internally. 

Some weeks ago we (Holger, Mickey, Daniel, Jan and me) sat together in Taipeh 
discussing this issue. We had 2 options: connman or exalt. Mickey planned to 
look at both and give us feedback as soon as a decision was made because the 
FSO team intended to integrate a network manager anyways.

Hope the feedback is coming soon.  :-)
