I have installed 4mLinux on an older laptop, now trying to connect to WLAN/internet.
Sorry about the long post, I tried to cramp all possible info inside
I tried to follow this guide:
I start WiFiScan, it opens a scan.log
Listed is also the WLAN that I wish to connect to - nice.
At this step of using NetConfig:
appeared the first problem.
The name of my wlan is "FRITZ!Box 7362 SL"
(same as the modelname of the physical router thing)
Entering FRITZ!Box 7362 SL
ash: 7362: unknown operand
sed: unmatched '/'
That does not look good?
After that it gets a bit fuzzy in memory:
After trying that guide a few times, I selected "y" on advanced options.
wifi.conf opend and I entered the wlan details there.
ESSID="FRITZ!Box 7362 SL"
I tried with and without "" quotes.
The network name and KEY I am 99.99% sure to have entered correctly. (tried many times, and my windows machine connects with same details)
Then I tried to click around in the WPA GUI and "Network Preferences."
At one point I also had in "Scan results" listed all the WLAN's in area, with signal-strength, frequency etc.
I tried to doubleclick my WLAN and entered KEY there.
The closest that I get to working wlan, was in WPA GUI under 'current status' tab it would show some informations. But only for one seconde, then it went empty again. (??)
I could see the MAC of my wlan-router and something about "handshake failed" and "auth failed."
(At this point I had not yet noticed the 'event log' button, so can not post that)
In WPA GUI it reads:
Status: "Could not get status from wpa_supplicant"
[Scan] of WPA GUI does nothing. (no reaction when clicked)
wifiscan command in terminal still opens a scan.log, with my WLAN in it, too.
I have no idea what to do now?
The laptop is:
Terra M 8400 (dualcore, originally windows xp)
The 4mlinux version displayed on desktop is:
4MLinux (Linux v.4.1.13-smp on i686)
The WLAN in scan.log:
wlan0 Scan completed :
Cell 01 - Address: 34:MACMACMAC
Frequency:2.412 GHz (Channel 1)
Quality=31/70 Signal level=-79 dBm
