wpa encryption


hi,

i recently set up the wireless network to use wpa-psk. after i made the settings to the wlan0 file i rebooted and it was successful, i was getting a perfect connection, after which i rebooted again and i was not getting a connection at all, i didnt make any changes at all to any files, basically the reboot caused the problem, i was wondering if this has happened to anyone else or if someone could lead me into the right direction.

How are you setting up the WPA encryption? Meaning what program are you using?

WPA built into Suse 9.3, WPA_supplicant (like from linuxant.com), or what?

Is it WPA_Supplicant from Suse 9.3 install or Linuxant.com or where did you install it from?

Well being that I just installed Suse 9.3, I'm still getting familiar w/ the WPA gui. I got the WPA supplicant to work but only via command line because I've used wpa_supplicant in earlier versions of Suse. You need to create your .conf file also.

as root:

wpa_passphrase <essid> <passphrase>

enter the output of that to /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

then just wpa_supplicant -B -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf


it worked like a charm. If I figure it out on the gui side of things, I'll let you know. Hope this helps
