Not able to connect to WPA2 secure wireless networks with broadcom 4312

Hi All,

I have a dell studio 14z with a 1397 card (broadcom 4312 b/g). I have the rpmfusion kmod-wl/broadcom-wl drivers installed since the b43 ones don't support my card. Am able to add unsecured networks using NM and connect to them but have problems connecting to my secured network at home - WPA2-PSK. NM doesn't let me add any connection with security enabled and using a tool like wlassistant causes the 'No encryption protocols were found' message when trying to connect to a password protected network (They do show up on the wlassistant list). I have wpa_supplicant installed and lsmod shows up the lib80211_crypto_tkip module (I forgot the exact name) along with the wl module. I have the latest stable kernel and the corresponding kmod-wl from rpmfusion installed. All packages are x86_64 btw. Please help me out. I have already removed any potential conflicting drivers like akmod-wl, b43, ssb etc
