Just in advanced I'd like to say I've looked everywhere i could. I've been up all night trying to figure this out. Sorry for my post I rarely use forums so I have bad etiquette, and sorry for any typos. Ok here we go:
I have a fresh install of 13.37 on my HP Mini netbook. Broadcom BCM4312. I download the firmware for it and SlackBuild for broadcom-sta. Installed it, and rebooted. Install went fine because its now listed under 'eth1' instead of 'wlan0'.
Now i have edited my rc.inet1.conf and my wpa_supplicant.conf according to: http://alien.slackbook.org/dokuwiki/...wpa_encryption
My network is WPA2 PSK AES encrypted.So i followed the above guide posted. I did have some problems along the way because my password for my network containts exclamations marks (!!) at the end, and was throwing off wpa_supplicant, so i put ' around it. All is good.
Now after i am done configuring both the inet1 and wpa_supplicant confs i go to restart my device using:
and I get the following errors (which I have searched around but no clear conclusions):
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A):
SET failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument.Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
Set failed on device eth1 ; Invalid argument....
I'm really not sure what to do here. Here is my wpa_supplicant.conf and inet1:
This is at the end of my file:
##CONFIG FOR ETH1
WLAN_ESSID=Xibalba <---Name of router
WLAN_KEY="s:mypassword!!" <--- password w/ s: in front of it so it doesnt trip out because of the exclamation marks
DHCP_HOSTNAME="slackbox" <-not name of anything, not sure if i needed to put something random for router to identify my computer as
WLAN_WPADRIVER="wext" <-- ?
*when using wpa_supplicant command i only see wext, n180211, and wired listed under drivers. Not sure if broadcom should be listed after the installation of firmware i did with SlackBuild
And here is wpa_supplicant.conf
psk=89723918273918273192873912837912837129 <-not actual psk key just didnt want to type it out}
