I've installed Debian Squeeze on a Compaq Presario CQ56, the wireless card
is identified as:
02:00.0 Network controller: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8191SEvA
Wireless LAN Controller (rev 10)
This is not supported by the kernal, so I downloaded drivers from Realtek,
built and installed them.
I can now scan - and my router will show up, but I'm not able to connect
I turned off WPA on the router, but this did not help. I know the
router is OK since I can connect with the same computer using an
alternative OS ;-\
From what I can see this would be consistent with the card beeing able
to receive, but not to transmitt.
So - I'm stuck here, any tips on how to procede from here?

with the first gereration of the RTL8192se i had a problem like you.
Using wicd instead Networkmanager helped.

Excellent advice, thank you!
I was using wicd, but Networkmanager was installed, and presumably
started via udev or some-such. I uninstalled it and now wireless is
working beautifully with wicd.
