    E: Couldn't find package wpasupplicant


    Any ideas? As well, do I even need WPA if I'm only using WEP?
    If you only use WEP you don't need wpa_supplicant, you just need to configure your network connection(wifi one) with your WEP password. No need for wpa_supplicant in your case.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Thank you.

    However I updated with the repositories and was able to install wpasupplicant. After reading through I realized the same thing as you indicated that I wouldn't require it. Does it matter that I installed it? If so how do I go about removing it.

    So everything is apparently loaded, the driver, firmware and ieee80211 subsystem. I still can't get online wirelessly. When I execute

    dmesg | grep ipw

    I get the following.
    root@ubuntu:/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware# dmesg | grep ipw
    [4294699.812000] ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.0.6
    [4294699.812000] ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2004 Intel Corporation
    [4294699.816000] ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2915ABG Network Connection

    [4294703.553000] ipw2200: failed to send WEP_KEY command

    Also - when in network settings from System settings, my wifi card shows up as eth1. I can't get it to enable. I click enable and it attempts and immediately goes back to disabled. I have tried disabling my eth0 and rebooting, but still the same problem. Is there some conf file or something I need to edit to get this working and initialized?

    Thanks again for everyones help.

    Okay, got my radio on I had to do an Fn F2 on the keyboard. So everything appears good, I am able to scan networks and it appears to be functioning, however I am unable to use the internet.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    I FINALLY FIGURED IT OUT BOYS!!! WOO HOO LOL

    That was a serious mission!

    In the end after turning on my wireless radios, all I needed to do was add my WEP key explicitly in /etc/network/interfaces

    iface eth1 inet dhcp
    wireless-essid MYSSID
    wireless-key MYWEPKEY

    Thanks to everyone who tried to help out with this issue! And thanks to the writer of the original post with a great explanation on the installation process.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    So, now that you found out how to enable your wlan interface and to use it with WEP encryption you should try to go one step further and enable WPA encryption, since it is much more secure.

    Good luck

    Hi. I have just installed ubunto 5.10, and i'm newbie in linux.

    For two days i have been fighting against my laptop (fujitsu-siemens amiilo 1425) following the how to. All is fine until I have to execute make in the ieee80211-1.1.6 directory.

    I have the following messages:

    Checking in /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build/ for ieee80211 components...

    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build M=/home/jandrey/ieee80211-1.1.6 MODVERDIR=/home/jandrey/ieee80211-1.1.6 modules

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-2.6.12-9-386'
    make: *** [modules] Error 2


    I have read twice the whole thread and i couldn't find any problem like mine. I have download delates version of ipw driver 1.0.8 and 802.11 subsystem 1.1.6

    thanks for helping me
