wpa_supplicant fails association/authentication

I've been at this for quite a while and I've looked in a lot of threads for a solution and none of them worked. Out of nowhere my wireless setup just stopped working (I didn't even upgrade anything) and I haven't been able to fix it ever since.

At first I was using netcfg and it started giving me this:

netcfg adn
:: adn up                                                                                                                                            [ BUSY ] 
 > WPA Authentication/Association Failed
                                                                                                                                                     [FAILED]

After trying to figure out why this happened I decided to change to wicd but it also didn't work. So I followed the instructions listed here and when I run wpa_supplicant manually I get the following:

wpa_supplicant -B -Dwext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd

After this trying to run dhcpcd or dhclient fails. I don't really understand what's wrong with that output and searching for bits of it gives me no answers that worked. I've also tried removing related packages and their configuration files and then starting from scratch but it also didn't work.

This is my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf:

ctrl_interface=DIR=/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=wheel
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1
network={
        scan_ssid=1
	ssid=ID
	psk=KEY
	proto=WPA
	key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
	pairwise=TKIP
        group=TKIP
}

Thanks for your time and sorry if I posted this on the wrong forum.

Re: wpa_supplicant fails association/authentication

I'm assuming that is a modified version of your /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, not the actual one ... right?

In either case, have you tried regenerating the conf file from wpa_passphrase?

Re: wpa_supplicant fails association/authentication

Yes. I've tried:

wpa_passphrase ID "KEY" > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

and it doesn't work either.
