wpa_supplicant problem - ndiswrapper, router's dhcp all working without encryption


I'm using ndiswrapper version 1.50. I'm on kernel 2.6.23.8-63-fc8 in fedora 8. It's a fresh install (laptop used to be dual boot - now just F8).

I have ndiswrapper working, lights on, full connection when the encryption on the router is turned off. I feel like this is confirmation that ndiswrapper is not my problem with the security on. Is this a faulty assumption?

When I run 'wpa_supplicant -Dndiswrapper -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -d' I don't get any magic anywhere (yes, I enabled it in the config before making wpa_supplicant).

When I run 'wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -d' I get an endless cycle that doesn't output any obvious errors:

My wpa_supplicant.conf looks like this:

Code:
ctrl_inteface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant

network={
     ssid="MYSSID"
     #psk="ASCII"
     psk=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
     key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
     proto=WPA
     pairwise=TKIP
     group=TKIP
}
I had it all up in Fedora 7 and I kept my wpa_supplicant.conf and I know I didn't change anything on the router's side. I know dhcp on the router is working because it works fine wired and wireless without security.

Also, when I run 'dhclient wlan0', I get:

Code:
[root@localhost ~]# dhclient wlan0

When I run 'iwlist wlan0 scan' it picks up the three networks near my house so I know the card is up.

Please help.

I had problems getting ndiswrapper on Fedora8 to work with wpa_supplicant, I ended up just scratching wpa_supplicant and using network manager, which is working great. Good luck -Dave

Dave:

Did the network manager handle the WPA security? I didn't think it would. I guess I'll have to give it a shot.

Thanks for the pointer.

Not Worth the Trouble

I finally broke down and paid $30 for an intel 2200 to replace the broadcom piece of junk. Worked right out of the box and I'm done. Knowing how easy and relatively inexpensive that was, I recommend that solution to anyone fighting with the broadcom chips in linux!
