Wireless 3945ABG + WPA


Another silly question.

I want to get WPA2/PSK to work with my linuxinstall, which is running the fine distro Archlinux.
This is what dmesg gives me when its all loaded:
Code:
ieee80211_crypt: unregistered algorithm 'NULL'
ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'NULL'
ieee80211: 802.11 data/management/control stack, 1.2.18
ieee80211: Copyright (C) 2004-2005 Intel Corporation <jketreno@linux.intel.com>
ipw3945: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945 Network Connection driver for Linux, 1.2.2d
ipw3945: Copyright(c) 2003-2006 Intel Corporation
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:0c:00.0[A] -> GSI 17 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
PCI: Setting latency timer of device 0000:0c:00.0 to 64
ipw3945: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection
ipw3945: Detected geography ABG (13 802.11bg channels, 23 802.11a channels)
Looks fine to me.

iwconfig:
Code:
eth1      radio off  ESSID:"cuttercrew"
          Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.437 GHz  Access Point: Not-Associated
          Bit Rate:0 kb/s   Tx-Power:off
          Retry limit:15   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off
          Link Quality:0  Signal level:0  Noise level:0
          Rx invalid nwid:0  Rx invalid crypt:0  Rx invalid frag:0
          Tx excessive retries:0  Invalid misc:163   Missed beacon:0
My startup line with wpa_supplicant and its error messages:
Code:
[root@perkele biio]# wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ieth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Trying to associate with 00:14:bf:16:28:fe (SSID='cuttercrew' freq=2437 MHz)
CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys
Authentication with 00:00:00:00:00:00 timed out.
Trying to associate with 00:14:bf:16:28:fe (SSID='cuttercrew' freq=2437 MHz)

WPA: Failed to set PTK to the driver.
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
WPA: Failed to set GTK to the driver.
RSN: Failed to configure GTK
My wpa_supplicant.conf (this one has worked):
Code:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
update_config=1

network={
        ssid="cuttercrew"
        psk="edited out"
        proto=RSN
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        pairwise=TKIP
}

Kernelversion: 2.6.23.1
Driverversions: ipw3945-1.2.2 - ieee80211-1.2.18
I have also enabled all the encrypt-options that the ieee80211-readme tells me to.

In Windows XP I can do it.

with this 3945, I used this to make it installed on one machine and runnning with wpa : http://forums.knoppix-fr.org/viewtopic.php?pid=79191
It worked with kwlan.

I could have wpa with another device with wifiradar with modifying the eth0 to eth1 in the /etc/wifiradar... config sthg once.

It make work with the Mepis Livecd from the box, and the mnetwork is nice tool.

Good luck & give progresses !

I cant help more cuz

Hi,

Thanks for the info, you're doing a good job
I tried kubuntu LiveCD some weeks ago and it worked (as it was the KDE in Kubuntu, with kwlan* stuff).
I suppose for some not understandable reason, WPA works in KDE, maybe, generally in Ubuntu 7.10. I will examine the drivers and versions file-by-file with that of my Gentoo.

Will keep up-to-date,

Thanks by the way, would you have a link to this livecd with kde ubuntu with kwlan* stuff ?

(Is it over long to load ? it takes 10 min to load this livecd if recall well)

you may check this for add. info : http://intellinuxwireless.org/?p=iwlwifi
howto: http://intellinuxwireless.org/?p=iwl...=HOWTO-iwlwifi
you'd need both :
- firmware (in /lib/... , visible with # dmesg )
- driver
like you wrote / know already.

I prefer Mepis or Knoppix to Ubuntu, but if you said it worked fine, I might give a try.

Thanks already.
