    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Annoying issue...
    That happened to me a couple of times. I solved it reinstalling the ipw2200 driver. Make sure you delete all previous modules. You could also try to disable hwcrypto.
    At most you can try to install ipw2200 1.0.4.

    Have you installed kernel-headers?

    Is is the consensus that ipw2200 ver 1.0.4 is the most stable? The most recent release is now 1.0.8 and I've tried up to 1.0.6 and still find it to be flaky with my Toshiba laptop's built-in Intel Pro Wireless adapter.

    I'm happy to go back to to 1.0.4 if its the most stable.

    1.0.4 is the last version which includes the ieee80211 subsystem too and so there could be fewer issues.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Okay, this is the wierdest thing, it worked after I rebooted my comp. I had everything that I did before and didn't change a thing and now I restarted and bam...

    I noticed though that you have your ssid and I am a total nube when it comes to anything wireless since I prefer wired. I have my laptop at school and really don't know what my ssid name is. There are also multiple access points that I can be useing esp if I move around. Could you tell me how to set somthing like that up? It would really help me a lot, Thanks ~Ben

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    It depends on how the net is set up. Anyway, if the ssid is broadcast, you can try to scan the area and see the ssid found. Otherwise, if the ssid is not broadcast, you have to ask you school for it.
    As far as the multiple access points, you could set up several network profiles with different gateway IPs.

    Likely if there are multiple access points at your school, they will all have the same SSID, just use "iwlist eth1 scan" (where eth1 is your wireless device) to get a list of access points

    Hi..

    I have just come back to kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 and now wpa works ok...
    Probably there is a problem with kernel 2.6.13.* or the new versions of the ipw drivers...

    With kernel 2.6.11-1.1369_FC4 I have followed the luca_linux's how-to instructions and all works well.

    Thanks luca_linus for the how-to!
