wireless newbee needs help
 
Hi,

it's the first time I have to set up a wireless network on a notebook.

How can I find out whether the connection is encrypted or not.

wpa_gui tells me
Authentication WPA2-PSK
Encryption TKIP

but

iwconfig wlan0
says

Encryption key:off

and on the server (hot spot) I have configure WPA2 personal, encryption
TKIP and an (ascii) password.

Many thanks for your help,
Helmut.

iirc, iwconfig doesn't recognize WPA2, so it looks like you have an
encrypted connection. You can try 'iwlist wlan0 scanning' to confirm this.

Hi,

I have installed wpa_supplicant and changed the "country" entry
in /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf and also added a few lines at
the end of the file:

network={
ssid="my_essid"
psk="my_ascii_password"
priority=5
}

Then I created a symbolic link to "/etc/init.d/net.lo" called
"/etc/init.d/net.wlan0" and that was it I think ... also set
"rc_hotplug" to "net.wlan0 !net.*" in "/etc/rc.conf".

That should be all to get wireless networking going if the kernel module
for your network card is loaded and you have the firmware for it in
"/lib/firmware".

Using kernel 3.1.5 at the moment and the carl9170 driver.

Save yourself some hassle and use either wicd or NetworkManager - both
wrap wpa_supplicant, and make for a much smoother mobile experience.
