Default wicd with WPA2 fails

sid fully updated

wicd connects fine if I turn wireless security on the WRT54G2 router
off. When I set the router to WPA2 - AES I get (from wicd.log)

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

(...)

Try starting "wp_supplicant" in debug mode to make the log more verbose
about that error. It seems failing at some point of the authentication.

Also, try to lower the security a bit by choosing WPA-PSK (TKIP) or WPA2-
PSK (AES+TKIP) instead just AES. Stronger encryption requires better
coberture so devices can "dialogue" smoothly.

wicd calls wpa_supplicant with wext. I don't see a preferences setting to change
to cause more debugging.

I just tried as many variations as I could without success. I'm not 100% sure
I am always matching the router settings with the laptop wicd settings.

Thanks,

Paul

It might be better to put away wicd for a moment and invoke
wpa_supplicant directly with the -d switch. You may have to set the
ssid first with iwconfig(8).

"wpa_supplicant" can be run directly. IIRC, "-dd" modifier switched into
debug mode. "man wpa_supplicant" for additional/detailed info on how to
get this done.

That is an important setting to check. Reviwer your "/etc/dbus-1/system.d/
wpa_supplicant.conf" or whatever the config file is. AP and
wpa_supplicant settings must match.

I have read the man page. I apparently need a valid wpa_supplicant.conf file. The only one
I can find (/etc/dbus-1/system.d/wpa...) doesn't seem to be valid. I get lots of errors
about that file when I supply the -D -i and -c parameters.

Thanks,

Paul

There are several sample configuration files in the
/usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples directory. The wpa-psk-tkip.conf
file could be a good starting point.
