Problem with Ralink and WPA_Supplicant for WPA

Posted 11-11-2007 at 09:03 PM by kumar_bst

I am using ralink driver and wpa_supplicant 0.4.7 in the linux platform 2.4.22 [RedHat 9].
I am facing piculiar problem. I can associate to the wireless router if I use cofig file rt73sta.dat in the driver using WPA-PSK mode.
But, if I use wpa_supplicant, I am not getting any IP address. Infact the entry for wireless interface is removed from ifconfig output. I saw the same problem with higher version of wpa_supplicant, 0.5.8 and 0.6.0.
The problem is not there for the ralink driver

I executed the following commands,

# insmod rt73.o
# ifconfig rausb0 up
# wpa_supplicant -c <wpa_supplicant.config file name> -i rausb0 -D ralink -dd
# dhclient

Please help me.
