WlanConnection - WPA2-EAP(PEAP;MSCHAPv2) How to configure?
after a long way i finaly made my 4965 card work with my Debian and kernel 2.6.24-1 (64-bit). I can connect to WEP WLAN without problems.
Now i want to configure my card for our companys WLAN. We have Domain authentication. I already could get the WPA2 config running with my old labtop with Suse 10.3. With Suse it was relatively easy with Knetworkmanager. Now with Debian i have to get this crap running by hand because the Networkmanager installation i tried under gnome does not work... I have an Networkmanager Icon under gnome but it can not find any card...
So can anybode give me a clue how i can configure my debian by hand for authentication with a WPA2 Enterprise WLAN which is EAP based and needs Windows Domain User Authentication (PEAP and MSCHAPv2).
Thanks in advance.
You need to install a program called wpa_supplicant. Either use apt-get or aptitude to install it. I don't know if it works with the GUI programs, but at a command line I can (and have) authenticated wirelessly with most every type of wpa encryption, including PEAP.
I have struggled with using wpa_supplicant myself, trying to connect to just such a network. For the benefit of all those who know as little as I do, is there a how-to tutorial about using wpa_supplicant anywhere? That would be great.
i have installed wpa_supplicant but i am not shure if i configured it correctly. Hopefully someone can help me with this part.
My wpa_supplicant file looks like this:
eap=PEAP TTLS TLS
My /etc/network/interfaces file i have modified too like this:
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dmadwifi -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant
i have also tried -Dwext option but this does not work too.
The modules for madwifi are loaded correct and the iwl4965 module too. i can see the network in kismet for example but i dont know how i have to configure the files correctly.
You have a few problems in there. You shouldn't have 2 files controlling one thing, and in this case you do have that, possibly causing a problem as the /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf file fights with the /etc/network/interfaces file. I also think you have way too much going on in your wpa.supplicant.conf file, and bet you'll get better results by trimming it down.
First off, don't put anything about a particular ssid in your /etc/network/interfaces file. That file effects your interface all the time, so with the ssid wrapped in there, you'll never be able to authenticate at a coffee shop or wifi hotspot. I'd make that file look like this for the wireless card:
You do need to call wpa_supplicant with -Dmadwifi for your setup, wext would be if your card worked with just the kernel and firmware, basically without madwifi.
So here are some commands:
