Android tether and wpa_supplicant
 
Hi fellow gentoo users

I'm trying to connect my laptop to my HTC Hero using wpa_supplicant,
has anyone done this?

this is what I see in wpa_cli when I do scan_result

#bssid / frequency / signal level / flags / ssid
#02:23:76:81:26:67 * * *2412 * *240 * * [IBSS] *G1

And according to the example wpa_supplicant.conf this should allow me
to connect to a IBSS network.
network={
* * * *ssid="G1"
* * * *mode=1
* * * *frequency=2412
* * * *proto=WPA
* * * *key_mgmt=NONE
* * * *pairwise=NONE
* * * *group=TKIP
* * * *#psk="abcdefghijklm"
}

I have tried the connection in Windows and that works, so the phone is working.

Any help is greatly appreciated :)

If you're using WPA you should define a passphrase. You seem to have
commented out your psk.
