WLAN connection to Fritz!Box with WPA + WPA2 under 4MLinux v.20


Hello to all,
this is my first post here and I beg your pardon for my bad English.
I have tried to install several versions of Linux on my old notebook with a Sempron 3200+ CPU in the past. I found out, that the time from starting until the "login" appears is very short in the above mentioned 4MLINUX.
The only problem is that I can't connect by WLAN, but only LAN with a cable.
To enter a key in the script in /etc/network there are 4 items:
WPA-Personal (PSK)
WPA-Enterprise (EAP)
WPA2-Personal (PSK)
WPA2-Enterprise (EAP)

In my Router I use key "WPA & WPA2". Which one should I use now?

Someone else had just the same problem and told here in your forum to install a driver from the elder version 16 and install this by typing "zk addon modules-all-4.1.13-smp.tar.xz"
I already found this driver and I could isolate it from the archive (under windows, shame on me). I copied this file to an USB-drive but from this moment, I don't know how to handle it. I hope, anybody may help me, because this are my first steps with linux and I have no experience with it. I have grown up with MS-DOS, later I used Windows since ver. 3.
Linux itself is still very strange for me...

Thanks a lot forward

Hello,
thanks for your answer/question.
in the meantime I could unpack the tar-file with "zk" in the menu "maintenace - Files - PCManFM", but I'M sorry, I don't know how to look for the correct name of the driver. As you can see, I'm not familiar (only "a little bit ) with linux until yet. But I'm still learning (and reading endless in this forum...)

You can not use "old" drivers with a "new" linux. New linux requires new drivers.

Let's start from the beginning. Have you tried to use the Network Configurator shown at the very beginning of this post:
http://4mlinux.blogspot.com/2013/01/...n-4mlinux.html ? Just enter your password and click on the OK button.

hello zk1234,
sorry for not answering until now. Just now I'm starting this answer for the 3rd time since yesterday, because all the text has been lost suddenly. May be, I have a bad internet connection?
I tried the above mentioned link, but I did not succeed. Can you recommend any manual to me? I've been searching in the internet the whole day. It's very difficult for me, because all documents are written in english and there are more than 50 years gone since I've been in school for the last time...
When I tried to enter the name of my network (I think, it should be the SSID of my router, "FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN" and so on) in point 3 in --Settings -- Netconfig I get the comment

ash : Fon : unknown operand
sed : unmatched<'/'

After this I edited the file /etc/net/wifi/wifi.config and did complete the SSID. Then I started terminal and entered "connect!, but without success again. What can I do?

regards

hello zk1234,
I forgot something important: before I tested your link, I've made a new installation of my 4M linux...

... and I also forgot to mention, that I tried another linux on this machine: Antix MX Linux ver. 16, and there was no problem with my WLAN, but it's not as fast as the 4M Linux...

You are talking about the NetConfig script. I was asking you about the Network Configurator. Have you tried it ?

Code:
mcedit /etc/net/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
Replace "any" with "FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN", and replace "password" with your real password.

Done with the midnight commander (shame on me for that old windows relict), but no success. I also switched the possibility to allow new WLAN-connections in my router menu to "on". Shall I also rename the "any" in the wifi.conf?

Sorry, but I<don't know, if this is the correct way to append a file, please let me know. Tomorrow I'll answer via twitter, if you prefer this. I'm still learning, but it's very hard...

Your card is supported out of the box. I am asking for the 3rd time: Have you tried Network Configurator ?

Hello,
I'm very confused now: what is the difference between network script and network configurator?
May be, that there is the solution for the problems...
In the meantime I could find out how to make screenshots from my activities. Where should I send these files?
I also added an account at twitter. This is the 1st time contacting a so called "social network"....
