wpa_supplicant problems


System: Fedora Core3, acer290 with ipw2200 wlan.

If I build with the default .config file it builds ok, but when I run it I get the error ioctl[PRISM2_IOCTL_HOSTAPD]: Operation not supported Failed to initiate AP scan.

The wlan connects ok if I don't use WPA so I know the drivers is ok. What should the .config file look like?

ipw2200 does not yet support wpa, but you should still be able to use it with WEP and wpa_supplicant.

Sorry, looks like I failed to say i'm building wpa_supplicant. But I'm lost on what all the posible options when you build it. You know of any good docs on it? The ones that come with it are good in talking about what WPA is but not so good on setting up wpa_supplicant build process.

Ta.
