setup IPW2200BG on FC4 problems
 
Hi,

Since doing a fresh install of FC4 after deleting my FC3 i cant get the wireless to work, even though i followed the same steps as i did prevsiously.

I'm using

ipw2200-1.0.0-23.rhfc4.at.i386.rpm
ipw2200-firmware-2.2-5.at.noarch.rpm
ipw2200-kmdl-2.6.11-1.1369_FC4-1.0.0-23.rhfc4.at.i686.rpm

and followed the instructions from the tutorial on this site. I'm also installed wpa_supplicant and set it up accordingly.

However, whenever i try to "ifup eth0" it says i cant connect and check the cables.. My wireless is turned on and in the Network control panel it says eth0 is wireless.

Any ideas? :Pengy:

Do you have all security on now when you try to connect? If it's possible I'd try turning your security all down and then make it work one by one. I suspect you have something wrong now in setting your essid and keys probably. I haven't seen a lot from wpa-supplicant so I'm affraid I can't help you much with it. However you might want to have this thread moved to the wireless forum?

I just turned all my security down and it connects yay ^^.

So now I know its my wpa i think =)

is this how to setup wpa.conf?

network={
ssid="dchomew"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk="mykey"
}

I firstly run the supplicant with -D ipw -Bw -i eth0.
Then i do "ifup eth0"

is this the correct way ?
