    Re: HOWTO: Wireless Security - WPA1, WPA2, LEAP, etc.

    Well here I am... I try what you suggested, but still somehow the wireless get an IP automatic here are the results of the commands you posted:

    myron@archlux:~$ sudo ifdown -v eth1
    /etc/network/interfaces:16: interface eth1 declared allow-auto twice
    ifdown: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"

    myron@archlux:~$ sudo ifup -v eth1
    /etc/network/interfaces:16: interface eth1 declared allow-auto twice
    ifup: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"

    I dont know what went wrong...

    Any Ideas?

    Could you post the whole contents of "/etc/network/interfaces"?

    Re: HOWTO: Wireless Security - WPA1, WPA2, LEAP, etc.

    I have a Linksys WPC11v4. I'm trying to access the network here at my rented vacation house(I don't have an ethernet cord handy). I have to use the (rather restricted)computer here to type this(by hand).

    Here's the info(from iwlist wlan0 scan):

    Cell 02 - Address: 00:0D:0B:FB:94:F1
    ESSID:"Triple T"
    Protocol:IEEE 802.11b
    Mode:Managed
    Frequency:2.462 GHz (Channel 11)
    Quality:blah blah blah
    Encryption key: on
    Bit Rates:1 MB/s; 2MB/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 11 MB/s
    Extra:bcn_int=100
    Extra:atim=0
    IE: WPA Version 1
    Group Cipher : TKIP
    Pairwise Ciphers (1) : TKIP
    Authentication Suites (1) : PSK

    I know the passkey and the passphrase. If anyone is using a Linksys WPC11v4 and using WPA settings with a similar setup, please post your /etc/network/interfaces.

    There should be stuff on the first page. Use the script for WPA1 and DHCP, that should be ok.

    What chipset have you got? Ralink by chance?

    I found out that there are two entries for "eth1" in "interfaces".

    I tried to edit the file and get rid of the 2nd entry which caused the problem but "sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces" didn't respond. So I thought " lets log as root in console mode and nano it".
    Alas, I typed by mistake "sudo init 3" and when nothing happened I remembered that I should type "sudo init 1" (or at least I thought I should ).
    I don't know why (I know now...Murphy's law ) but nano didn't worked out either so I thought " ok lets go back to graphical interface" typed "exit" and...bam!!! Al I see since is a light brown screen with a mouse pointer in it.
    Apparently I some how managed to screw up my system.
    Funny thing is I cant just give up using the "It's all Greek to me" excuse,
    because I AM GREEK and thus I should be able to figure it out

    We have a saying here that freely translated goes: "Twise the same sin isn't a wise mans manner". Thinking I might have to reinstall for the third time... here goes my wisdom...

    Any thoughts about that?

    Sorry for saying it but your post made me laugh. Yeah, I have gone through similar situations, it's like domino, you try to fix one thing and by doing so break a couple of other things that make the whole situation deteriorate.

    All I can say here is that you should open up a new thread and post your problem there. I guess it can be fixed so don't reinstall just yet. People will tell you where to find the right log files, how to interpret and ultimately how to fix the issue.

    Nevertheless if you have a problem with your wireless network, you know where you find me.

    RTL8180(I do use ndiswrapper, however). I'll try the script provided.

    I am running Gutsy as well. Also, the ESSID contains a space. What is the correct syntax for entering it in the interfaces file?

    Try this WPA1 script and let me know if you run into problems.
