Hi All guys,
I'm having troubles with ipw2200 driver WEP;
I installed everything correctly, I can connect to networks and all, BUT when I want to use WEP encryption [with network manager applet] apparently I have troubles: it keeps asking for the password and then I keep staying unassociated... the thing I'm wondering is: the latest firmware (3.0) which I have installed with the latest drivers (1.2.2) should natively support on-chip WEP encryption... but I see that when I write the asked WEP password on the network manager popup, wpa_supplicant starts running in background.
Is there the possibility that 2 WEP encryption algorithms are working and conflicting together at the same time ???
If you are wondering how am I writing here, I just created a file "ipw2200"
in /etc/modprobe.d/ and added the line "options ipw2200 hwcrypto=0"
Could this be helping??? I wonder what will happen the next time I disconnect...
WPA works like a charm btw and Monitor mode as well (nice feature!)
