Enable WPA


Hi all. I got wireless working with ndiswrapper and so far so good. But now i'd like to get it to run with WPA protection. How do i do that? I followed the instructions of another forum i read. And nothing seemed to have worked. Can anyone give me a site where i can get it working under fedora and ndiswrapper? Thanx in advance!

When you set your router to WPA encryption, Fedora should detect the encryption type automatically and ask for the key when you try to connect to your router's SSID name. What window manager/Desktop are you using? When I ran Fedora 8 I had Gnome and used gnome network applet to connect to the wireless network I think...

Exclamation Router Setup

Is your wireless router setup properly to use WPA encryption?

am glad this helped and yes you are right the key to ndiswrapper in Fedora is
Code:

ndiswrapper -m


I think this allows the Network Configuration to detect it and can then be configured with the gui tool
