Issue #4362 has been updated by Ken Mays.

Ref: https://bitbucket.org/enricop/illumos-gate/wiki/Home

Enrico Papi (enricop at computer.org) wrote - 'I confirm that the current net80211 module and libdlwlan library often have an 
authentication timeout problem during the wpa2 4way handshake. This happens for 
both pure wpa2 AP and wpa/wpa2 AP.
It is not a problem of the kernel that supports AES_CCM cypher and not of wpad 
daemon, but in how libdlwlan and wpa driver interface manage the association 
process. In other cases it can be a device driver issue but i think this is not 
your case.

In general this problem is solved in the wpa_enterprise GSoC project repo.
This, i think, will be integrated in Illumos, not before October.
Let me know if you want to try an build the development bits.

Regarding support for High Throughput rates:
while the device driver  might correctly advertise the speed rate to your AP, 
libdlwlan will not *show* speed rates higher than 54mb. Also net80211 module 
might lack of full support for these rates.

However if dhcp works you are associated with the AP,
but you probably receive a deauth frame as soon as you get the IP.
I would try with dladm if you are not using this yet and be
sure the psk passed to wpad is correct (dladm show-secobj -o all).'

I have an Intel Centrino Ultimate-N 6300, 
My Airport Extreme requires WPA2 to let client's speed go over 54Mbit/s.

Thanks in advance.
