View Full Version : WPA2 wireless won't connect with Netgear USB Wireless stick

I installed my external Netgear WG111v2 USB wireless card to my Desktop running Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit using these commands:

sudo ndiswrapper -i netwg111.inf
[ndiswrapper -l outputs: netwg111 : driver installed]
sudo modprobe ndiswrapper

iwconfig output:

wlan0 IEEE 802.11bg ESSID:off/any
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.437 GHz Access Point: Not-Associated
Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Power Management:off

Then I tried to connect to my WPA2 home network using the WiCD network manager. The manager finds my SSID and tries to connect, but eventually fails stating an authentication error. But I checked the password multiple times, and our Windows 7 laptop can connect using the same password. (WiCD connects using cable without problems).

Then I tried wpa_supplicant, config file as follows:

network={
ssid="FRITZ!Box Fon WLAN xxxx"
scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk="xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx" (16 numbers)
}

(I assume the password won't need conversion into HEX, in any case I tried it but it complained that it exceeded 63 characters.)

Then I ran: sudo wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -d


OUTPUT is:

And that goes on and on.

Your HELP would be greatly appreciated. I had previously been able to use this Netgear with an older Ubuntu version, I think 8.10 or 9.04, without problems. Now I have a different wireless system and a newer Ubuntu.
