Thread: USB wifi adaptor and WPA network

  1. USB wifi adaptor and WPA network

    Hi!

    I have an USB wifi adaptor that lsub tells me about it:
    * Bus 004 Device 003: ID 148f:2573 Ralink Technology, Corp.

    I'm using drivers from serialmonkey and I can see networks and connect
    to them if they're opened or they're using WEP but I can't connect to a
    network using WPA.

    That's what I have in my wpa_supplicant.conf:

    network={
    ssid="wifinet"
    proto=WPA
    scan_ssid=1
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    pairwise=TKIP
    group=TKIP
    #psk="passwd"
    psk=a9f6f935e9c5a5712e74e53c72ee15ea8fd968d6d5e2b6 b8432707e15bff82b3
    }

    It took some time to me to connect to a WEP network because a I have no
    support for it into the kernel (IEEE 802.11 WEP encryption (802.1x)) so
    maybe I'm forgetting something I need for the WPA ones. I have into the
    kernel "IEEE 802.11i TKIP encryption" support and I had "IEEE 802.11i
    CCMP support" at the same time, but I removed it just in case it could
    cause some kind of issue having the TKIP support.

    The wpa_supplicant command gives to me:

    root@localhost# wpa_supplicant -W -dd -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/
    wpa_supplicant.conf

    Until I stop it with CTRL+C.

    I had this working few days ago, but I can't remember what I changed
    that made it stop working.

    I'm sorry about the huge log.

    I'm using the cvs version for the rt73 drivers and the 2.6.23.14 kernel
    version in a Gentoo version updated last week.

    Any idea about what did I change or am I doing wrong?

    Thanks in advance.

    Bye!

    Did you try using NetworkManager applet? It should take care of
    connecting to WPA, and WEP, as it does for me under Ubuntu 7.10 (did
    not work as well under fedora).

    My home network is WPA.

    The "rt73" driver is not what is usually referred to as "the
    serialmonkey" driver AFAIK. You want to use the rt73usb driver (part
    of the rt2x00 suite).

    I have no graphical interface in that computer and I wouldn't like to
    install one because I have much space.

    Sorry, I'm using already that driver. I didn't know I should name it
    that way, sorry.

    Bye!.
