Question wpa_supplicant ipw2200 unsupported dirver


Hi

I'm trying to connect to my wireless network with wpa_supplicant client.
I give the command:
wpa_supplicant -c wpa_supplicant.conf -i eth1 -D wext

I obtain:
Trying to associate with 00:03:52:93:46:28 (SSID='eduroam' freq=2417 MHz)
Association request to the driver failed
Associated with 00:03:52:93:46:20
CTRL-EVENT-EAP-STARTED EAP authentication started
CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys
Trying to associate with 00:03:52:93:46:28 (SSID='eduroam' freq=2417 MHz)
Association request to the driver failed
Associated with 00:03:52:93:46:20
CTRL-EVENT-TERMINATING - signal 2 received


Any ideas?

Try -D ipw instead of -D wext

Hi, jlinkels

Thanks for your reply.
I have already tried it. I obtain the error message "Unsupported driver" for -D ipw or -D ipw2200.
So, I've searched in internet and I've found that linux has moved from ipw to general wext driver...but it doesn't work also with this option as you can see from my first post.

Nope, then I am out of ideas as well.

On my laptops I recently installed cowardly Networkmanager to connect to WPA networks. Since then the number of problems with networks greatly reduced. It is called KNetworkmanager in KDE.

I have one laptop with the ipw2200, which does NOT run Networkmanager yet. Whenever I want to use that driver I must unload (rmmod) and reload (modprobe) the driver after booting if I want to make it work anyway. But that installation is 3-4 years old and ipw2200 might have been improved.

Hi

I've recompiled wpa_supplicant and the problem with the driver isn't present anymore.
Unfortunately the authentication doesn't work yet.

Now I start wpa_supplicant with:
wpa_supplicant -i eth1 -c wpa_supplicant.conf -D wext -d

My wpa_supplicant.conf file is:

network={
ssid="eduroam"
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
eap=TTLS
identity="user@domain.it"
anonymous_identity="anonymous@domain.it"
password="password"
#ca_cert="/etc/cert/ca.pem"
phase2="auth=PAP"
}



This is the debug report:
