I cannot get WPA protocol to work on Mepsis 6.0 with a Netgear wireless adapter (WG111v2). I have tried through the console and through a GUI (wifi-radar) and both methods get an IP through DHCP, but when I ping a website or try to surf, I get nothing. I have googled the issue and looked through Mepis' documentation and have found nothing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Here is my wpa_supplicant.conf, which resides in /etc:
To bring up the wpa_supplicant, I issue this command as root:
wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -D wext -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
I don't know which driver my wireless card is using because Mepis recognized it via native drivers, so I just use the general "wext" driver for the command. Thanks again for any help.
