  1. Bug#470558: linux-image-2.6-ixp4xx: Please enable TKIP wireless encryption module (ieee80211_crypt_tkip)

    Package: linux-image-2.6-ixp4xx
    Version: 2.6.24+13
    Severity: wishlist


    The default kernel of ARM ixp4xx based devices (i.e. NSLU2) does not include the necessary modules for wireless networks using WPA security
    with TKIP encryption. I know this is deprecated in favour of the AES based CCMP encryption, but I am using some devices which do not
    support CCMP, so must fall back to TKIP.

    The ieee80211_crypt_tkip.ko module is required to be built and can be enabled by setting "CONFIG_IEEE80211_CRYPT_TKIP" in the kernel config.
    I've done this on a custom build of the kernel image and it works OK and I can use my NSLU2 on the wireless network
