    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Works great on my Dell 6000 can now connect to my schools network with a little variation of this. Instead of making all these scripts to start wpa I downloaded network selector panel applet so I can choose which network I want to connect to since they all use the same credentials.
    Great Job man

    hi, i'd just like to say that after much hair-tearing and frustration, i used your HOWTO to get my wireless network up and running, so thank you very much.

    extra credit points for making it nice and simple for people like myself (happy linux/ubuntu user for 4 days and counting...)

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Just tryed this excellent HowTo with the up to date files:

    Ubuntu 5.10
    ieee80211-1.1.6
    ipw2200-1.0.8
    ipw2200-fw-2.4

    and everything works perfectly after following these advises, addressed in this thread:

    I got a successful load of both ieee80211 and ipw2200 with modprobe and therefore no more problems.

    Thank you guys

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    This may sound ignorant, but... What do I put in /etc/network/interfaces ?

    I've done all of the above, and tried to connect via System->Administraton->Networking

    I select the SSID and leave the security part blank, or should I put my WPA key in for the WEP key?

    Thanks!

    Thankyou very much for this how-to Luca, and everyone else who has made other contributions. Even though Ubuntu is probably the best linux distro out right now, the wealth of knowledge spread by its users on this forum, makes it all that much better to use.

    Disabling wpasupplicant?

    Hello all. Thanks to Luca and others in this forum I'm now able to connect to ap's with wap protection. However, I'm no longer able to connect unencrypted ap's. I'm running a gateway MX3560 laptop, with ubuntu Breazy 5.10 and ipw2200 driver 1.0.6. I have wpasupplicant set to load when I boot, so my laptop is automatically configured for wpa. When I tried using the built-in network configuring tool in Ubuntu, I could see the listing of all the potentially connectable ap's. I chose one which I knew to not be encryted, but the eth1 wireless interface would not configure. It is as though the wpasupplicant is completely controlling my interface. Is there a somewhat easy way of switching between wpa and no encryption during the same booted session? Thanks for any help.

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    I'm getting an error when trying to make the "ieee80211-1.0.3"

    The error is:
    Code:

     Aborting make.

    I have tried to "sudo make check_old" - but still get the same error...

    I have followed this guide, but get's the error all the time. Anyone having a suggestion what to do? I have a IBM T43 2668-74G.

    You need to open up the root file browser (see www.ubuntuguide.org), and then go into the directory /lib/modules/2.6.12-10-386/build/include/config/ and manually delete ieee80211 and ipw2200

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    question:

    in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, the part that says psk="something", is that something supposed to be the password you set on your router, or some wierd long string that that password represents?

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Thanks for all this information.

    I'm a complete newbie here, trying to make the wireless internet working on Ubuntu 5.10 (i've downloaded the ipw2200-1.0.8 drivers). Using this howto, I run into problems already when trying to compile the ieee80211-1.1.6 package

    This is what I get from the root-terminal:

    root@ubuntu:/home/rasmus/ieee80211-1.1.6# make
    Checking in /lib/modules/2.6.12-10-386/build/ for ieee80211 components...

    make: *** [modules] Error 2

    Aargh, what's going on? From then on, nothing seemed to work. Eventually, when trying to install the ipw2200 drivers, I got the message:
    root@ubuntu:/home/rasmus/ipw2200-1.0.8# make

    ERROR: ieee80211.h not found in '/lib/modules/2.6.12-10-386/include'.

    You need to install the ieee80211 subsystem from http://ieee80211.sf.net
    and point this build to the location where you installed those sources, eg.:

    % make IEEE80211_INC=/usr/src/ieee80211/

    will look for ieee80211.h in /usr/src/ieee80211/net/
    I hope someone can help. Cheers!
