trying to get native ralink driver working on Debian Etch (std 2.6.18-4 kernel) with D-Link USB key
have wpa-supplicant package installed and this is working well with built-in Intel2200BG 11g chipset on laptop.
ralink driver : 2007_1220_RT2870_Linux_STA_v126.96.36.199
followed std setup intructions in ReadMe
folowing settings are perhaps most important in config.mk :
# Support Wpa_Supplicant
# Support Native WpaSupplicant for Network Maganger
when I do an "ifup ra0" get follwoing:
ioctl[SIOCSIWPMKSA]: Network is down
ioctl[SIOCSIWMODE]: Network is down
Could not configure driver to use managed mode
ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
WEXT auth param 4 value 0x0 -
Cannot seem to connect to my 11n AP (WPA)
(and can connect to it using WinXP and the key)
although I can
connect with this driver to my 11g AP (WEP):
ra0 RT2870 Wireless ESSID:"11gAP" Nickname:"RT2870STA"
Mode:Managed Frequency=2.462 GHz Access Point: 00:15:A5:5E:F7:ED
Bit Rate=54 Mb/s
ff Fragment thr
Link Quality=78/100 Signal level:-64 dBm Noise level:-87 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf seems to be OK, there is an entry for the 11n
group=CCMP TKIP WEP104 WEP40
if I try to do an "iwconfig ra0 essid 11n-AP" the essid is not changed, stays at "" and ra0 cannot associate with 11n AP.
but kwifimanger detects my 11n AP (can see the essid) but thinks its running WEP not WPA?
maybe wpa-supplicant is wrongly configured for the key mgmt?
(I have the built-in 2200BG WiFi switched off during this test)
