So basically what happens is that you associate but no data is
transfered? Did you confirm that the dhcp client really gets the ip

I didn't immeadiately notice anything wrong from the logs. I would
like to know if the problem is related to power save mode or
encryption. Can you first test without encryption, ie. connect to an
open network and see if you still see the problem. If you still see
the problem, disable power save and connect to the same open AP again.
