If it's asking for a u/n & p/w, it isn't wpa-psk (pre-shared key). It  
depends on what type of authentication they are doing, but PEAP is the  
most common, I believe.

Any reason you aren't using Network Manager for this? You don't have  
to be running Gnome or KDE to use it and it more-or-less just works in  
most cases.
