I am running a FC3 and have an atheros wireless chipset.I got the madwifi driver installed and configured for the card and am able to access wireless networks that do not have an encryption key with ease.
So, for accessing encrypted N/W's i got the wpa supplicant and have compilied the binaries and installed it.But, I am not very sure of my config. file for this i.e., (wpa_supplicant.conf)
Here is how it looks:
# default, wpa_cli will use it when trying to connect with wpa_supplicant.
#I just have this block in
psk= (my key in hex)
So, after this when I run
$wpa_supplicant -i atho -D madwifi -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
I get error as ssid "my network" could not be parsed. can anyone suggest what could be the problem?
