    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    This was a very helpful thread. Thank you so much. I have my WPA-PSK working in under an hour.

    One thing that may be helpful for others. If you are not using the ipw2200 network driver then you need to change the wpa_supplicant -D parameter.

    In my case I had to change it to the following for my atheros chipset wifi card:

    sudo /usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -B -dd -i ath0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -D madwifi -w

    Note that the /etc/init.d/wifi_wpa.sh script also needs changing. If you're not sure what the parameter should be then the following is what my version of wpa_supplicant will accept:

    Curses. I posted the previous message before I added the drivers list. So here it is:

    drivers:
    hostap = Host AP driver (Intersil Prism2/2.5/3)
    prism54 = Prism54.org driver (Intersil Prism GT/Duette/Indigo)
    madwifi = MADWIFI 802.11 support (Atheros, etc.)
    atmel = ATMEL AT76C5XXx (USB, PCMCIA)
    wext = Linux wireless extensions (generic)
    ndiswrapper = Linux ndiswrapper
    ipw = Intel ipw2100/2200 driver
    wired = wpa_supplicant wired Ethernet driver

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    I'm new to Ubuntu (and linux in general), and am still having trouple getting my wireless card to work.

    I followed the original instructions word for word (including installing the new headers and build essentials, as well as following the instructions for adding repositories). My problem is that, when I try to run make in the ieee80211-1.0.3 folder, I get the following output:

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

    find: /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build/: No such file or directory
    grep: /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build//.config: No such file or directory
    grep: /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build//include/linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory
    make -C /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build M=/home/ubuntu/Desktop/ieee80211-1.0.3 MODVERDIR=/home/ubuntu/Desktop/ieee80211-1.0.3 modules
    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    ubuntu@ubuntu:~/Desktop/ieee80211-1.0.3$ make
    Checking in /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build/ for ieee80211 components...

    find: /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build/: No such file or directory
    grep: /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build//.config: No such file or directory
    grep: /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build//include/linux/autoconf.h: No such file or directory

    make: *** /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build: No such file or directory. Stop.
    make: *** [modules] Error 2
    So, I know I'm missing the stuff that is supposed to be in /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/build/
    What I don't understand is where I went wrong. I would assume that those things should have been added when I installed the headers and build-essentials.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Oh, it may be worth noting that I am doing this from the livedisk. I wanted to make sure I could do the configuration things before I commited myself to Ubuntu.

    Question Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Sorry if this has been answered somewhere in this thread, but it's getting quite big so I couldn't read it through

    I got wpasupplicant working with this howto but now my problem is that my wlan connection reconnects about every 10 sec. This makes it practically unbearable to use SSH for example. In the wlan AP log I can see lines "wl0: 11g: associated user......" & "wl0: 11g: deassociated user..." every 10 seconds. It takes about three seconds for the wlan connection to come up again as it disconnects and this is very annoying. This is my wpa_supplicant.conf:
    Code:
    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    ctrl_interface_group=0
    
    eapol_version=1
    ap_scan=2
    fast_reauth=1
    
    ### Associate with any open access point
    ###  Scans/ESSID changes can be done with wpa_cli
    network={
            ssid="XXXX"
            scan_ssid=1
            proto=WPA
            group=TKIP
            key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
            psk="XXXX"
    }
    Anybody have any ideas why this happens ?

    Re: HOWTO: ipw2200 + wpa

    Okay, I've done something really stupid I think

    I followed this tutorial, but it doesn't worked it all. So after a while, I rebooted to Windows, but now my WLAN isn't working any longer in Windows as well

    Windows finds my network, but can't connect ... Does this mean I ****** up my wireless card? Is there a possibility to fix it?

    Same here for some reason. So I stopped using Windows after all. Which is not a big deal for me, however, I am surprised such a thing could happen at all.
