Error for wireless request "Set Encode
When I do iwconfig wlan0 essid <blah> key s:<password> I get:
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A) :
SET failed on device ath0 ; Invalid argument.
It works perfectly on non-encrypted non-passworded free access points. But can't connect to the internet if I need a password. What's the magic word I need to get on the internet?
I have an Acer Laptop with a default Slackware 13.1 setup. There's nothing in syslog or messages or dmesg that is relevant. I know this has been asked many times before but none of the searches I have done have produced an answer that works. All that I can figure is that I have to modprobe something or other, but I have no idea what.
