View Full Version : HowTo: WPA with wpa_supplicant

Here was my first HowTo about this topic (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=26623). It made a success, but now it's a bit out-to-date, as it was written for Hoary.
This stuff has started getting easier to configure since Breezy and now it's really very easy to have it work.
This HowTo will help you get WPA to work, no matter what wireless card you have. (This HowTo has been tested with an ipw2200).
So, let's start:

1) Open a terminal window and type:

wpa_passphrase your_ssid your_psk
Note: your_ssid is the name of your wireless network (a.k.a. SSID) and your_psk is the password you want to use to protect your network. (Look below for an example).

2) Now copy the psk string you got as output.

3) Type:

sudo gedit /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Then paste this as follow:


ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ap_scan=2

network={
ssid="your_ssid"
scan_ssid=1
proto=WPA RSN
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP TKIP
group=CCMP TKIP
psk=your_psk
}

Note: your_psk is the psk string you got from step 1.

Here is an example:


luca@laptop1:~$ wpa_passphrase mywlan thisisthepassword
network={
ssid="mywlan"
#psk="thisisthepassword"
psk=b22ec921c254c73f99b31b76ff876692ecde36839a1f2d 92150829e6afcb5515
}

The red string is what you have to paste into /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf as your_psk (without quotes obviously). So you'll have something like this:


ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ap_scan=2

network={
ssid="mywlan"
scan_ssid=1
proto=WPA RSN
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP TKIP
group=CCMP TKIP
psk=b22ec921c254c73f99b31b76ff876692ecde36839a1f2d 92150829e6afcb5515


4) Save the file and close Gedit.

5) Now we have to make wpa_supplicant load when system boots, so go back to the terminal window and type:

sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces

6) Add the following lines in the part regarding your wireless card, as in the example below:


pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -ieth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

Note: "eth0" is your wireless device and "wext" is the driver; this is a kind of generic driver, so it should work with most wireless cards. If it doesn't, please try another driver, such as hostap, ndiswrapper, etc.
Here is an example:


iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.15
netmask 255.255.255.0
wireless-essid my_essid
gateway 192.168.1.1
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -ieth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant


7) Now run wpa_supplicant:

sudo wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -i eth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
You should be online!



Troubleshooting:

You can run wpa_supplicant with -dd flag for a detailed debug output.

1) If you don't manage to connect to the AccessPoint, try to uncomment line 2 in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf.
2) If that doesn't help, try change its value to 0 or 1.
3) If you get troubles while authenticating, try removing "RSN" and/or "CCMP" strings from /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf.

Only like to say that if you put the string in "/etc/network/interfaces" you will get an error if you try to reload the DHCP "sudo ifup -a --force"

I would go for a boot script in the /etc/init.d/your_own_script
And add it using

update-rc.d -f your_own_script start 40 S .

If you use DHCP, your /etc/network/interfaces should look like the following:


auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -ieth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant


Does this cause that error?

yopnono
September 25th, 2006, 04:13 PM
I know you should not enter the IP etc if using DHCP.
I did get an error

/etc/network/interfaces:12: misplaced option
ifup: couldn't read interfaces file "/etc/network/interfaces"

But what was because of this:

iface eth0 inet dhcp
auto eth0
Instead of:

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp
Strange this only happen if I enter the pre-up/down to the interface file

yopnono
September 25th, 2006, 04:22 PM
Another thing is that if you use the interface file and you dis/enable you network interfaces, it over writes the interface file.

I am so close - I can almost taste it, but still not having luck. Can someone direct me?

I am running a LAMP server with a Linksys card running the Broadcom chipset. It can see the access point, but it won't hook up correctly. Here's the output of iwlist

Try playing with the parameter "ap_scan", setting it to 0, 1 and 2 and see if something changes.
Anyway, what wireless card do you have? It should also be a matter of driver, that is you should change "wext" (in the wpa_supplicant run command) to something else such as hostap, ndiswrapper, etc.

yopnono
September 26th, 2006, 12:04 AM
Yes, which driver/card are you using, does it support WPA. Is WPA on at the router. etc,etc. Is it the same password.

I don't understand -- why is it eth0 if your wireless device is by default eth1?

I also get "Daemonize.." as the output of "sudo wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -i eth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd"

In the HowTo I supposed the wireless card was eth0, but you have to change this with your device (as I wrote in the HowTo itself).

As for your output of wpa_supplicant, it's right if you are running it (you have to get "Daemonize..."), while if you want to see a detailed output for debug, just take the "-B" flag out and add "-dd".

luca_linux... Thank you very much. I have been fighting with this for a long time and I feel I am now really close. WPA-PSK is linking and my interface (ath0) is receiving an IP address via DHCP. The only problem is the networking drops off from time to time... I opened a terminal window and let it "iwevent" to see what has been happening and here is the result...

Check if you have more then one "wpa_supplicant" running in the system monitor.
Or more then one "dhclient3"

onioneater36
September 27th, 2006, 12:03 PM
yopnono...

I assume you wanted me to check in gnome under SYSTEM > ADMINISTRATION > SYSTEM MONITOR and I did not see even 1 instance of either wpa_supplicant or dhclient. Is there something at the command line you wanted me to execute to examine these processes?

Moreover, did you add the SSID also to the configuration of your wireless card in Gnome network-admin?

luca_linux
September 27th, 2006, 02:09 PM
From what you have written, I see you have an Atheros-based wireless card, so in the wpa_supplicant run command you should change "-Dwext" into "-Dmadwifi".

matthewboh
September 27th, 2006, 02:14 PM
Just wanted everyone to know that I got my WMP54GS card running WPA TKIP using ndiswrapper and wpa_supplicant - NOT the bcm43xx driver. Thanks everyone for your help and assistance!

Woops. Sorry. I should have mentioned that I did use -Dmadwifi and I also used -iath0 as my interface has the different designation. Thank you.

I will try the ps -A when I get home this evening. Thanks. I have also noticed that if I am using the network with heavy traffic over the wifi it seems to stay up. Droppings seems to occur during no/low usage.

yopnono
September 27th, 2006, 04:48 PM
I did have a problem like yours before.
This was because the wpa_supplicant started after suspend, so I had more then one wpa_s running and conflicting.

So I did put a killall wpa_supplicant script in the /etc/acpi/suspend.d folder. On the other hand I don't start my wpa using the interface file, I use a boot script, so it may not be the same issue.

Hi all,
Don't mean to go off on a little tangent, but i have a quick question.

First off, I have everything working. I connect fine and its not problem. My issue is with my laptop when i got to different networks. its a pain to constantly change the config file and the interface. when i am going back and forth from unsecured to secured its not that bad but then i go from WPA to WPA its just a pain having to change all the files.

basically all I do is change my /etc/network/interfaces from


auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
wireless-essid COVAD1
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -ieth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

to


auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
wireless-essid COVAD1
#pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -ieth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
#post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

then i have to restart the computer. I know that there is a way to restart the networking and i have tried ifdown and then ifup, but no luck. Is there a applet out there that I can create profiles for different locations so i can just switch locations and deal with changing the wpa_supplicant.conf file and the interfaces file? i am running gnome and i have tried the network configuration but no luck, it just overwrites the ESSID and nothing else.

thanks in advance and sorry for being slightly off topic, but i thought it kinda pertained to this how to

This wpa config used in this thread is not for you. You should use network-manager.
You will find it in synaptic, or use the terminal.

sudo aptitude install network-manager

luca_linux
September 28th, 2006, 01:42 PM
Yeah, you should use network-manager. Anyway, if I'm not mistaken, it only works with DHCP.

00trav

I have network manager installed, i even reinstalled it, and it still doesn't seem to work right. It sees wired network but not wireless, maybe i am not useing it correctly, i do see a signal strength up in the upper right, which when i open gives me some network into, i can click configure and then i can see my network configuration setting to which i can click on configure of my wireless device and then i can see a drop down list of networks in the area, but there is only a spot for a wep key, and WPA doesn't work.

As this is getting way off topic, i am going to start a new thread in the noob section, but thanks to everyone here since i at least could connect by altering the interface file and wpa_supplicant.conf,

great info luca
using a ipw2200 with wpa-psk ccmp here and couldnt get network manager to act reliably

I would connect and drop until I removed all TKIP references and the RSN for wpa_supplicant.conf which I thought was weird. Then I'd connect longer and die until I commented out the ap_scan command. I had it commented out originally but it still wouldnt connect for longer than a few seconds.

The essid parameter in network/interfaces has disappeared.
And now my connection has dropped again. :(

I can see (network monitor) and hear (the minipci card buzzes when it scans) my adapter falling into scan mode. I think there was a bug in the ipw2200 driver that it defaulted to scanning constantly - that was patched in march so this kernel driver is old. Im gonna try to throw it an option that is supposed to stop it, i think it was hwcrypto=0 I have to check on that one

How do I set permanent ip,gateway and dns settings for my wireless adapter? If I set them using the network monitor(gnome panel) they reset the adapter and the adapter generally doesnt reauthenticate with the ap. If I set them in the etc/network/interfaces they are ignored in part when I throw an ifup/ifdown to the interface. My ip might get set but the route might not.


what overwrites the interfaces file?

One thing worth noting, I mentioned that my network would work most of the time but would drop occasionally. Referencing the wpa_supplicant.conf file here...


ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ap_scan=2

network={
ssid="your_ssid"
scan_ssid=1
proto=WPA RSN
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP TKIP
group=CCMP TKIP
psk=your_psk
}

I changed the one line to "proto=WPA" instead of "proto=WPA RSN" and it has not dropped since. I did this on a guess just trying things to see if it would work and it did. I knew what WPA was, but not what RSN meant and that is why I removed it. Is there someplace that explains some of these major configuration files like /etc/network/interfaces and /etc/X11/xorg.conf and all these major files a linux noob who wants to become a linux junkie should know about? I keep trying to learn more about the boot process and what happens and take it a file at a time, but if someone has advice how to learn the system, I'd definately take it. I digress. If anyone can answer the WPA vs WPA RSN and what that means, and why it may have fixed my problem, I'd appreciate it.

Thanks

check out the wpa supplicant website it has alot of info and the readme files that break down all the wpa_supplicant.conf options

rsn is wpa2, listing it as a possible option shouldnt effect the connectivity of other encryption protocols but it did for me too

http://hostap.epitest.fi/cgi-bin/viewcvs.cgi/*checkout*/hostap/wpa_supplicant/README?rev=HEAD&content-type=text/plain

if u want to learn about anything id suggest using google to research the program/technology etc that youre interested in learning

gentoo forums and wiki are jampacked with info - remember to omit words with less than 4 letters in your searches on many sites including ubuntuforums, they will turn up blank - google wont do that and has a fair amount of the info here and on other forums indexed

good luck

The "proto=WPA RSN" parameter does not cause any issue to me...that's strange. It could probably depend on how your routers handles the authentication.
Anyway, thanks for your feedback. I'll add that suggestion (that is removing the "RSN" string to the HowTo.

It seems to come back soon enough, but sometimes it just keeps playing now you see me now you don't.

Any ideas are sincerely appreciated (especially based on the error messages I have listed above from "iwevent".

Should I maybe download the source for the latest version of madwifi and wpa_supplicant and try updating? I have whatever comes with Ubuntu 6.06 LTS 32bit at present. I am also considering trying the NDISWRAPPER method as well, but right now, this is the closest I have gotten, so I don't want to persue that yet.

First of all, I suggest you removing the psk key from your post for your privacy. :p
Then, as for your problem, try to uncomment the second line and rebooting wpa_supplicant. If that doesn't help, try changing its value to 0 and/or 1.
In the meanwhile, also try taking "CCMP" out, even though that shouldn't help as "RSN".

Ok, good to know.

well I installed the latest ieee80211, wireless tools, ipw2200 firmware and ipw2200 drivers and its a big improvement

no more queue full problems , no more disconnects every time I attempt to use the network

its much more reliable now - no need for the hwcrypto=0 module option because the issue has been fixed

one thing I did have to do is re-enable the apscan option in wpa_supplicant.conf because my essid is hidden and without that option I have serious problems trying to authenticate

its pretty much the same process as your old howto although some make processes run the removal scripts automatically

for me its really worth it - i have no idea why stable drivers and tools that have been out more than 6 months havent been included in ubuntu
wireless tools is at 28 ubuntu is at 18
ipw2200 is at 1.2.0 ubuntu is at 1.1.1
ipw firmware is at 3.0 ubuntu is at 2.4
same with ieee

luca & magneto...

Having learned from one of your previous posts that the RSN in the WPA RSN line for "proto" meant WPA2, I re-did my WPA_supplicant.conf to use WPA2 and reconfigured my router as well. Although it has not worked on WPA, it does seem to be working on WPA2. Perhaps this could help someone else if they had the same problem.

matthewboh or anyone who can help -> I have a bcm4311 wireless card using it with ndiswrapper. I am trying to set up wpa_supplicant per the how-to but I get the following when running it with -dd option:
Driver doesn't support WPA I get this when using option -Dndiswrapper of wpa_supplicant. If I use -Dwext I don't get that message but I can't connect to my network. I know there is some info you might need but I am not sure what else to post here. Oh yes, I am using AMD64 Dapper. And I got a connection before when using WEP, but I want the stronger WPA security.

I can connect to the internet with this method. However, for some reason the router detects it as a direct connection, not wireless. The router reports that it has given 192.168.2.3 as ip, but Ubuntu says 192.168.2.103. I can't access the local network, it doesn't find the computers it should find. And when I try to access the router on 192.168.2.1 it wants a login and password which I normally don't give in that manner (it should show the router login page).

Any ideas on how this weirdness is happening? Ofcourse, everything works as it should on Windows. I've tried this on Arch Linux also and it's the same. I may try a wep key with mac filtering later but only to test it.

1) Open a terminal window and type:

wpa_passphrase your_ssid your_psk
Note: your_ssid is the name of your wireless network (a.k.a. SSID) and your_psk is the password you want to use to protect your network. (Look below for an example).

Hello,

I do not understand what is meant with 'your_psk'.

Is this something I choose locally on my computer in Ubuntu or is this supposed to be stored on the router?

My netgear router is set to use wpa-psk but i only have a passphrase, no psk.

And another question, is wpa_supplicant already installed in Dapper? Or do I have to download it manually?

thanks for the great work =P

edit: actually, now i want to know how to script it so that i can run from my desktop or panel. i dont want it running at boot as im scared that it will be broadcasting my ssid and psk from boot, so i want to choose. Can i just chmod +x it?

Hi,

I'm new with Linux...I'm trying to use my WPA-wifi connection with my notebook... the wifi card is a Intel 2200BG.

This is what I've done so far:

sudo kwrite /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ap_scan=2

network={
ssid=Sydney
scan_ssid=1
proto=WPA RSN

}

(SSID and PSK aren't the one I use, just copy and pasted and changed a bit)

Then....

sudo kwrite /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wireless-essid Sydney
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -ieth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp

auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0

and last

sudo wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -i eth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

....everything should work but it doesn't...

So...anyone can help me?

I'm not sure if this makes any difference but I receive this message when I'm running Kwrite...

You can see the Bit rate, signal level, noise level and the associated channel 0 then have values.

Can you tell me where is this debug or how command you use ? I need this information - I have a problem concerning WPA-TKIP.
Many thanks !

L.S.,

After trying a number of different options I managed to get connection working. I will detail the options on a website in Dutch so other people who want to use wpa on a Dutch network can find help. Thanks for all the advise here on these pages.

I had wireless working with Ubuntu until I upgraded to Edgy (I did a clean wipe and install), but I am totally stumped at why I can't get it to work anymore. I've followed every post in this thread and tried playing around with many different configuration settings, but I've had absolutely no luck.

My main problem is that my wireless card can't find (scan?) my network (I have an Intel ipw2200 wireless card, and the device is eth1), nor any networks for that matter. My network's name is "dude wireless" and uses WEP encryption. My Debian desktop is connected to it just fine. I've tried both the wext and ipw drivers for wpa_supplicant, but neither of them worked.

Here is the output of a ton of commands/files, so if anyone can help me figure out what's wrong, I would appreciate it.

First of all, I'm new to this so go easy on me. I have come to the part where I'm to paste that thread in to interfaces. But I'm not sure where, under the eth0 or wlan0?

this is what interfaces says:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp

auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp


And should I get any reply when I try to run Wpa_supplicant? I don't get any =S

Thanks in advance

@matthewboh
I looks like you have similar hardware to mine. Maybe you could post your wpa_supplicant.conf?

@all
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'd love to get my new laptop online on linux.

EDIT: Nevermind, I have it working. I changed the driver to wext and ap_scan to 1. Though no one had a chance to help me directly, I'd like to thank you all for your help; this thread has really been helpful.

Thanks for the Howto. I got it to work such that I can connect if I run

however, when the computer starts up, it doesn't seem to be getting an IP. How do I configure it so I don't have to manually restart networking? Thanks.

First, before reading this How-To, I had my 'interfaces' file without all the wpa config commands. Instead I had these two lines:

post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

Contents of my 'wpa_supplicant.conf' file:

scan_ssid=1
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK

}

Everything seems OK to me. But I just cannot hook up to my wireless router, even after disabling my wired connection (eth0) and disconnecting my ethernet cable.

Please, I've spent three days on this now and Ubuntu is really starting to frustrate me. Someone help!

Just a thought:
Have you tried using NetworkManager? (choose network-manager-gnome in synaptic)
Once it is installed, comment out all the lines that refer to your wireless interface in your interfaces file
Then reboot

Some references: 1 (http://live.gnome.org/DarrenAlbers/NetworkManagerFAQ#head-45c7dcb29a13372e1da1221b5ed499d981ea7ec6) 2 (http://boff.wordpress.com/tag/wireless/)

Yes, I've tried Network Manager. I've tried both the versions, one from the Synaptics Package Manager and the other from SVN. The Synaptics version has only WEP in it. The SVN version was supposed to display WPA, but gave me only one additional encryption option: LEAP.

Forgetting about encryption, both versions of Network Manager were unable to connect to even an unencrypted wireless network, as has been the case with all methods I've tried.

I finally managed to get it going thanks to this info after banging my head against a wall for a few hours.

Like MrNormS, I was using -Dndiswrapper instead of -Dwext, in my case due to
https://help.ubuntu.com/community/WifiDocs/WPAHowTo , I ran wpa_supplicant -h and saw the list of drivers, assuming ndiswrapper was the one.

Other than that, the only hard part was actually finding the right windows drivers for my card.

I think these two lines are the most important:

I have no idea why SET is not working. Any ideas? I can't even connect to an unsecured network!!!

hi, i just had a few questions. I've been using Ubuntu for more than a year, but i don't understand a lot. In this thread, there was some stuff that was mentioned that I'm hoping can be clarified.

1) when the code (like in Question 2) is entered into the terminal to start up the connection and the response is "Daemonizing", what does that mean?

2) What is the difference between

sudo wpa_supplicant -w -Dmadwifi -i eth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd
and

sudo wpa_supplicant -w -Dwext -i eth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd

3) what is the difference between eth0 and ath0?

4) Where does the ndiswrapper fit into all of this?

5) what is dhclient3?

Thank you in advance. I hope to understand using the codes better, and actually get my connection working with the new understanding of how it all works.

I finally got everything configured for wpa_supplicant. It works beautifully, but, I always have to manually dhcp after the boot completes.

sudo dhclient
How do I get the system to do that after it starts wpa_supplicant?

/etc/network/interfaces:

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dmadwifi -iath0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1

network={
ssid="xxxxxx"

key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
proto=WPA
priority=5
}

network={
ssid=""

}

i figured out the answers to the questions i had above. though i still don't know what "dhclient3" is... anyways, i've almost got my computer connected to the wireless, but it still has the disconnection symbol on the icon. everything is fine until I run
sudo dhclient and then the response is
No DHCPOFFERS received.
No working leases in the persistent database - sleeping.
there's more to the response, but it's too long to type out, and i can't copy and paste, as i am using a different computer than the one that's having problems. =(

It's been doing that every single time. So far, i've changed from automatic DHCP to a static IP, i've changed codes in the wpa_supplicant.conf AND the /etc/network/interfaces, and nothing seems to make a difference. It keeps getting stuck at that point.

this is what i have in my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ap_scan=2

network={
ssid="networkname"
scan_ssid=0
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
proto=WPA
# pairwise=CCMP TKIP
# group=CCMP TKIP
psk=very long number/letter sequence
}

is it possible to have settings for two different wireless networks? if so, how do i do that? I assume that it would deal with the other dealies in the interfaces file, like eth0, eth1, eth2, wlan0, and lo, but what do all those mean?

Hello

I'm trying to configure WPA using my ipw2200

My /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ap_scan=2

network={
ssid="senso-unico.nl"
scan_ssid=1

My /etc/network/interfaces:

post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

auto eth2

Now when I run

$ sudo wpa_supplicant -w -Dwext -i eth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd

From what you have written, I see you have an Atheros-based wireless card, so in the wpa_supplicant run command you should change "-Dwext" into "-Dmadwifi".

I have an Intel Pro Wireless 2200, and I now use -Dwext, is that ok?

Hey guys.

So I just switched to Ubuntu from Fedora today and I'm trying to get my Intel 2200b/g going (as I couldn't on Fedora either!!!

Few questions:

1) Which driver should I be using for the 2200? Dwext or Dipw?
2) No matter what I seem to do it doesn't even look like my wireless LED lights up at all!
3) Is this really what has to be done to connect to any WPA network? Seems a bit long winded.

Thanks in advance guys...

I tried farting around with lots of code in my /etc/network/interfaces, Knet, KWlan, KwifiManager and what have you - all to no avail.

This little howto did it for me and my IBM T41 - bloody excellent work!

Thanks a million!

ok, first it worked, then it didn't, then it did again...

worrisome!

switched to knetworkmanager (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DapperKNetworkmanager) and it is the absolute killer when it comes to working with networks.

there is a little configuration to be done (feel free to ask questions) but quite simply superb.

Hi everyone !

First I' d like to congratulate to luca_linux for this very nice howto ! :-)

I have 3 minor problems ...

1,To luca: you also have ipw2200 why is it not working with


sudo wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dipw -i eth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

It works if I use -Dwext so it is not a big thing I'm just curious :-)

2,Any of you guys (and/or girls ;-) ) tried to use ipw2200 chip with WPA under M$ *******r ? Because if I switch my network to WPA my other machines with ipw2200 (and XP) would not connect. :-(

I read some articles about ipw2200 + WPA under XP but none of them give straight and exact explanation (unlike this GREAT howto :-) )

3, Is WPA 2 possible somehow ? My router is capable for sure ... but I think ipw2200 will be not enough for that :)

Thanks for all !

Hi ,

I have installed ubuntu 6.10 on my dell inspirion 6000 and love it (the LAN card works fine and I can get itnernet) - one glitch - quite major - I can't get the wireless inbuilt centrino adaptor to work - ultimatley I want it to work over my WPA TKIP connection that my existing windows boxes use.

As I want to transition away from Windows this is the only factor stopping me from making the switch on all my computers to Ubuntu - so please help if possible.

When I do an iwlist I can see that eth1 seems to be picking up my wireless access point SSID. But it will not connect. I have followed the above instructions except when I type in the wpa_passphrase your_ssid your_psk - nothing comes back.

Do I have to download the tar files suggested in http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=26623 , and then extract and install them to het wpa+passphrase to work or should they be there with 6.10 ?

So is the psk that needs to go into the psk part of the wpa_supplicant file ned to be generated by using the wpa_passphrase command ?


thanks heaps
steve

Hi s-bris,

even though I have never run Ubuntu (Kubuntu is my poison) I am certain that you might want to try this little beauty

https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DapperKNetworkmanager

Not only does it list all the networks your card can see, but it also takes care of wep and wpa for you.

hi, im using a laptop with a broadcom wireless card, 4318, after trying first with ndiswrapper and was working fine, now i use bcm43xx-fwcutter and works +-, worst than ndiswrapper, but i was unable to activate wpa with ndiswrappper.

well, on Kubuntu, every time i boot my laptop i have to make 2 things to have wireless working and connected to my wpa protected home lan.

first: run kwlan, and wait for a message that says: "eth1 is connected"
second: after that message, run in terminal "sudo dhclient eth1".

i have to make those steps every boot.

there is any way to get always eth1 connected?, and get ip from dhcp automatically?

thx

Question:

How do I set this up on a laptop (HP NC6220) with IPW2200 (Intel 2915ABG), but I have to use a certificate file vs PSK?

I read somewhere that ctrl_interface does not work well with wpa_supplicant and you can probably sidestep the problem by removing the lines at the beginning of the config that start with ctrl_interface.

Hope that helps.

Sorry, I just recently switched to Ubuntu. I think I can connect to my network, or at least wpa_supplicant tells me I can but I'm still unable to access the internet for some odd reason. Any tips?

First off, thanks Luca. I used your previous how-to for an install about a year ago, and this one has me close to wireless. My last problem is that for some reason it keeps dropping and picking up the access point

You can see the Bit rate, signal level, noise level and the associated channel 0 then have values.

My wpa_supplicant.conf and interface files are cut and paste from your how-to, excepting for my ssid and psk. The machine has a Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network Connection (rev 05)
I don't think this *should* make any difference, but I am running debian etch with kernel 2.6.17 Any ideas?

I have the same problem. Mine is a PCMCIA SMC card, and i'm using ndiswrapper.
Any idea what is causing the disconnections?

I have exactly the same problem. I'm using IBM R50e laptop, Kubuntu 6.10, ipw2200 with latest drivers (1.2.1) and firmware (3.0).

I'm connecting to Linksys WRT54GS, firmware 1.5.2.

I tried manually configuring wpa_supplicant and KNetworkManager. Same problem.

My Ralink card (desktop) connects just fine to my router using WPA, and my laptop connects without a problem to an open AP.

It seems the card associates and then tries to associate again, gets an error and disconnects.

I was having the same problem with an ipw card. Network Manager now comes with 6.1, and I finally fixed the problem by going to /etc/network/interfaces file and commenting out everything except for lo - then ran network manager and it worked like a champ!

This guide gets me up and running for a short time in Edgy, then nothing after any period of inactivity. My network manager applet shows a "wired network RaLink RT2561/RT61 802.11g pc", or did before I implemented the things in the first post of this thread. The card is actually a Linksys PCI card, WMP54g. I drop after a few minutes of inactivity and can't figure out why or how to restore connection without restarting the machine.

I tried the instructions and no joy at all with wpa_supplicant

I have a lot of questions about these instructions. I will go step by step

1. Ran the following in terminal window:

wpa_passphrase 'MYSSID' 'MY_PSK'
Where 'MYSSID' and 'MY_PSK' correspond with that of my wireless router.

I got the resultant psk string and copied it

2. Ran

sudo gedit /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

A blank file opened. Is that normal? I followed the instructions adding the following to the .conf file:


ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ap_scan=2

network={
ssid='MYSSID'
scan_ssid=1
proto=WPA RSN
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP TKIP
group=CCMP TKIP
psk='MY_PSK_STRING'
}

I saved this file.

3. I ran

sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces

Here is where things got kind of confusing. What you see below is what I currently have in that file. I placed what the instructions said under 'auto eth0' originally but that immediately dropped my wired connection when I ran wpa_supplicant in the final step. So I fixed it by placing the info from the instructions under auto eth1 since that is my wireless card when I run iwconfig. I am also using ndiswrapper to install my Windows driver so I changed that too.:


auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

auto eth0
iface eth0 inet dhcp

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
wireless-essid "XBOXWAP"
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dndiswrapper -ieth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

auto eth2
iface eth2 inet dhcp

auto ath0
iface ath0 inet dhcp

auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp

4. when I run

sudo wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dndiswrapper -i eth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

... nothing happens. Here are the results when I run it with the -dd switch

Anyone? I'm a total noob, so I may need some rudimentary instruction.

As another note, I have wifi radar running and it is at least seeing my neighbor's networks so I think the driver is working on some level.

Also, my SSID is hidden, if that is complicating things (??)

And the driver does support WPA. At least in Windows it does.

Have you tried installing knetworkmanager? This is a superb KDE networking tool, which took care of all my wpa1+wpa2 worries in a jiffy.
sudo apt-get install knetworkmanagerwill do the trick...

MY GOD!!! No wonder so few people are using Linux!

This is ridiculous! I've been trying for days to get my wireless network running with WEP and it won't work. Runs fine with no encryption but no connection if I enable WEP. Someone referred me to this thread which is a real laugh. Imagine having to write all that code to get it going and to figure out that it's not working because you missed a space or put a coma in the wrong place. Guess I'll just run the unprotected connection and hope for the best - or maybe go back to Windows. ;)

Yes, yes, I know, WEP doesn't afford much protection, but it's better than nothing, so....

Just wanted to thank you for this. I really think it's worth the small effort.
Incidentally, theblueray, if you don't want to miss a space or a coma (and save time and efforts), you can use copy+paste (just like in Windows).

I too am having problems. I've read the thread and it feels like I'm close, but no cigar so far! The WLAN nic is an Intel 3945 which seems to be seeing the AP when using the wext driver (first I tried ipw3945 which didn't work at all).

Here are the two scripts:

/etc/network/interfaces

auto eth1
iface eth1 inet dhcp
wireless-essid my_ssid
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -i eth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ap_scan=1

network={
ssid="my_ssid"
scan_ssid=1
proto=WPA
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP TKIP
group=CCMP TKIP
psk=**HEX SSID PSK HERE**
}


I have tried altering the ap_scan parameter to no effect. Below is the output I'm getting:

Just a minute after the previous post , And i don't really know exactly how but the connexion on my laptop is working again ( im writing this post on it).
So i ll post my /etc/networks/interface , and the last things i have done , perhaps that will help :

Wich was the same damn output meaning no permanent connexion .I finally typed in the terminal :



finally typed in the terminal

$ iwlist eth1 scan ;sleep 2

And then the iwevent stopped and the connexion was finnaly established , but i don't really know if the last command i typed resolved the problem or it is simply by chance .Im now effrayed that if i shutdown my pc i l not be enabled to get reconnected :(

here is my first attempt at getting wpa_supplicant working. Everytime I try using network-manager my computer crashed so I'm trying to get wpa_supplicant working. If you scroll down to the end I think I'm most sucessful there. I tried most of the hints on the post about removing RSN and changing the ap number from 0 to 1 etc. Anybody know how i can get this to work?

colin@multiX:~$ sudo wpa_supplicant -Dwext -i wlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

here i tried specifying ndiswrapper

here I started changing some of the settings suggested from 0 to 1 etc.

This thread is great. However, I am trying to setup a WPA2 connection using an internal Cisco WLAN + ACS connection. It woks fine with WIN***, but I can't get connected with Linux.

I have a Cisco B/G card (using the Atheros chipset = 'madwifi' driver)

My wpa_supplicant.conf file contains:

ssid="ap1"
auth_alg=OPEN
key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
proto=WPA2
eap=PEAP
identity="[username]"
password="[password]"
phase2="auth=MSCHAPV2"
scan_ssid=1

I am not able to connect. Anyone have any suggestions for using WPA2 with EAP/PEAP? Basically, the problem is that i am not able to associate with the AP. The AP is able to see my connection attempt for about 1 second, then shows no connections.

**********************************************

Answering my own question (for anyone else who might be interested).

Looks like the madwifi driver (and probably wext also) doesn't support WPA2. Time to try ndiswrapper?

I wouldn't even bother with Gnome-Network-Manager, it seems only to work for the few privileged . Ive spent 40 hrs plus and got nowhere. I ended up giving Wicd a try (ver 1.3.1), and HEY BINGO !!!! WPA Encryption works everytime. And for a newbie (GUI Girlie) like me, it was easy as hell.
The guy who wrote the software has made a great piece of kit, can (X)buntu get this into the repos as standard, Id even be happy to write a howto for it as well.

I would like to second that. Network Manager (Fiesty) does not detect my Intel 2915ABG wireless (Dell 630M laptop). I did get it working by setting up wpa supplicant and the etc/network/interfaces file, but it was coded only for my home network so roaming was a challenge!

Wicd installed and ran in a couple of minutes and everything just works!!!

A great piece of work.

Installed ubuntu fiesty on my thinkpad t41 two days ago in which everything worked sweet except for the wireless connection.

struggled for hours as I'm using WPA TKIP on my 3com router until stumbled on this. Followed all the tips/options until it worked. Only prob is I have to manually set the route(route add) for my eth1.

Hi there,

I think I tried all the tips and none took me to success... Maybe I am stupid, but I cannot make my WLAN WPA PSK running with Ubuntu 7.04
With WinXP no problem, this shows the router is ok.

MAC filter is off.

Anyone has an idea about the wpa_supplicant output?

got the solution by spending some hours trying again everything... and finally the solution was not looking at the ubuntu pages, but at debian...
http://www.debianadmin.com/enable-wpa-wireless-access-point-in-ubuntu-linux.html

This was the best and easiest ubuntu-like solution ever... clear the cfg files and it works :-)

If I want to disable and remove wpa supplicant what should I do (besides restoring /etc/network/interfaces and deleting /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf~)?
Should I delete /etc/wpa_supplicant? I head that it's necessary to leave the dir in place because it's used by a different WPA app-I'm not sure what it is, but it's initialized by these lines in /etc/network/interfaces:


wpa-psk <PSK key>
wpa-driver wext
wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
wpa-proto WPA
wpa-ssid <SSID>

HI! Guys

Am struggling a lot to configure my Ubuntu 7.10's WIRED ethernet with wpa.
At work they enabled the IEEE802.1x authentication with PEAP and encryption of MSCHAPv2 with windows domain account.
Can you help me with this configuration.
Desprately seeking help :(


Thanks

Encrypt a wired lan? Think you may have gotten something mixed up here - encryption, asfaik, is for wlans only.

ingo, yes we can and should encrypt wired connection. Take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/802.1x and alike.

jon_mark022, I known some people have this kind of setup working. Here's a link about the process for wlan, which should not be really different from a lan setup. You'll have to go step by step: ensure data layer connectivity up to authentication to the domain.

Is anyone still checking this thread? I'm in a situation where I need a command-line wireless utility to work and this seems like a really good option, expect its not quite working :-/

Here is my configuration file:


ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ap_scan=2

network={
ssid="rogue"
scan_ssid=1
proto=WPA RSN
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK

}

And here is a dump of the wpa_supplicant debug info:

There is life, it seems like there's communication taking place between the computer and router, but still no internet.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello guys...i'm havin' a problem connecting to WPA2 router
Firs thanks for such an informative howto to the author!!

Just wondering if you can do TKIP with WPA2 and drop the CCMP (RSA) portion from your wpa_supplicant part and set router to use TKIP. Also seems that your ESSID is incorrect?

Hello. So I have tried a number of things to get WPA encryption to work, but I'm at a loss and can't decipher the debug info for what is really going wrong. This thread and its previous suggestions have been great and if I can't get this working, I'm probably going to give wicd a try.

}

I've tried static/dhcp, including the RSN/CCMP lines, ap_scan values 0/1/2, and emptying the values and allowing Network-Manager to do the work. Unencrypted works. Would be willing to WEP, but the consensus is Linksys WMP11v4 doesn't support it. I know WPA works with WMP11v4 as I've tried following these instructions (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=7319&highlight=WMP11v4&page=2).

I hope someone can give me some input, I'm willing to try anything. Thank you.

I've gotten most of this working. One strange thing is that wpa_supplicant will not allow me to use ndiswrapper as the driver, only wext, which is strange as my WG111T driver is installed using ndiswrapper.

If I reboot, it hangs at 'Configuring network interfaces". I can remove the WG111T, reboot and then re-insert the WG111T and manually bring the interface up with a '/etc/init.d/networking restart'.

Could it be that ndiswrapper is not starting before the networking comes up?

wpa_supplicant newer releases from package or repository are only compiled with limited options such as using wext. This is not a drawback, but an advantage, since it simplifies setup. Everything should work with just specifying wext. If you need to specifically have the ndiswrapper option (which I can't think off the top of my head any reason you should need this), you need to compile from source.

The space in your essid name may be what is causing problems.

Thanks for your help kevdog. I guess that's something I should've anticipated. Turns out that solves that initial problem. I've switched the ESSID to davesnetwork now.

I've been working on getting it working now, however, I've quickly hit another road block. I get an error that specifies the "pre-shared key may be incorrect" and I will admit, that's a very specific sounding error. However, I've attempted to use the wpa_passphrase and just the ASCII PSK and they both come up with the same result. My router is set to use WPA Personal, TKIP, and the PSK = mypresharedkey. I've attached the output I get and my wpa_supplicant.conf. Hopefully someone has some some ideas on possible things to solve the pre-shared key issue. Thanks.

I'm having a problem with what once was a working wpa_supplicant.conf file.

the out put of

sudo sudo wpa_supplicant -D wext -i eth1 -c /ect/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd

gives me


Initializing interface 'eth1' conf '/ect/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf' driver 'wext' ctrl_interface 'N/A' bridge 'N/A'
Configuration file '/ect/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf' -> '/ect/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf'
Reading configuration file '/ect/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf'
Failed to read or parse configuration '/ect/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf'.
Failed to add interface eth1
Cancelling scan request
Cancelling authentication timeout

I belive that my problem lies some where in the ctrl interface 'N/A' bridge 'N/A'

Did I break something? and where?


here's my snip of my wpa_supplicant.conf file


#PEAP with MSCHAPv2
#for use with RADIUS servers that use old peaplabel
#(e.g., Funk Odyssey and SBR, Meetinghouse Aegis, Interlink RAD-Series)


ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#eapol_version=1
#ap_scan=1

key_mgmt=IEEE8021X

}


Thanks in advance.

Your syntax is wrong:

sudo sudo wpa_supplicant -D wext -i eth1 -c /ect/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd

Its /etc/wpa_supplicant......

Note the spelling problem.

Since upgrading to Ubuntu 8.10 I have had successive problems with WiFi. Having upgraded to 9.10 I can run wpa_supplicant and dhclient manually and get connectivity. Trying to do this automatically (as per the original post) prints the wpa_supplicant help message.

Also, when I get a connection, dns doesn't seem to work, or at least not via firefox.

Sure I must be missing something obvious.

I have an Atheros AR5001X+ D-Link card.

I love doing it manually as well, but is there some reason you have to do this manually? Network Manager or WICD isn't sufficient?

Ok, I need to pick someone's brain.

I have an old Dell Inspiron 5100 that I just picked up a Broadcom internal wireless card for (BCM4309). I installed the B43legacy driver for it, and managed to get it connected using NetworkManager. Only one problem. It connects at 80-90% signal strength, but the speed is slow to none (i.e. it only actually resolves websites on rare occasion).

So I disabled NetworkManager, and tried the steps in this tutorial. Same thing. It *sometimes* connects, and when it does, the speed is dead slow.

Any ideas as to what might be causing this?

Hmm, Network Manager fails to connect. It spends ages trying and then eventually 'fails' showing the form to enter the passcode. I had tried wicd but as 9.10 reinstalled Network Manager hadn't tried again. Thought I'd get it working manually first.

When I open interfaces to place those two lines in, it has nothing with in it. I'm a noob so I don't know if that's a problem or not.

It's been roughly 4.5 years since this how to was created and for those that wonder if it still works the answer is YES.
I disabled network manager under System > Preferences > Startup Applications
and am now connected without it using 9.10.

Actually I'm using Ubuntu Ultimate Edition 2.5, which is based on 9.10, so if you don't have Startup Applications you can install it with

sudo apt-get install gnome-session-properties
For those using AES encryption instead of TKIP just change them around in the instructions when doing it.

EDIT: I also removed these 2 lines, otherwise I would get an error.

pairwise=CCMP AES
group=CCMP AES


Thanks to the OP for the how to, to Chili555 for pointing me to it, and to others that have added to it over the years.

This is by far one of the most helpful howto's in this entire forum. I keep coming back every few months when I have to re-install my system cause I play around with it too much.. :D

Works every time!

I only read the first three pages of posts but it still helped me a lot. I just tried FreeBSD and had to configure wireless 'manually' with wpa_supplicant because of the Atheros based PCMCIA card. It was basically the same thing. Here's what my .conf file looks like if it will help anyone:


ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
network={
ssid="my_access_point_name"
proto=WPA
key_mgmt=NONE
wep_key0=<10 digits in here - no quotes>
wep_tx_keyidx=0
}
So there is a _lot_ of possibilities in that file.

Thanks for the help.

Oh yeh - this was in Xubuntu FWIW

Hi,

I'm trying to connect to a AP by command line but I can't yet. Using the network manager it's possible but I need the command lines to use in my code programming.

Here it's what I tryed:

sudo iwconfig wlan0 mode managed channel 6 key restricted s:'12345' essid 'cassiano-PC_AP'


and the tail: sudo tail -f /var/log/syslog


05:55 cassiano-linux kernel: [13476.935795] wlan0: direct probe to AP 00:15:af:84:29:d3 (try 1)

Aug 13 14:05:55 cassiano-linux wpa_supplicant[828]: CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys


I think that the error is:


Aug 13 14:05:55 cassiano-linux wpa_supplicant[828]: No network configuration found for the current AP


And when I connect with the network manager appears this on the tail:


NetworkManager: <info> Activation (wlan0/wireless): connection 'Auto cassiano-PC_AP' has security, and secrets exist. No new secrets needed.

and this:

The easiest way to configure wpa_supplicant is to connect to a wireless network using NetworkManager and then copy the config settings out of the daemon logs. This post here (http://www.brighthub.com/hubfolio/matthew-casperson/articles/84351.aspx) shows you how.

Hi t_anjan. Happy New Year!

For iwconfig to return useful output, you must run it as superuser:

sudo iwconfig

Unfortunately, I have no experience with ndiswrapper so I can't help you with that.

However, there is a native Linux driver for your wireless adapter I'd be glad to help you get working if you're interested.

I have an ancient(!) laptop that is running Ubuntu Desktop. However, I mainly (99.5%) use it as a server with console connections. Truth is, neither GNOME nor KDE runs very smoothly on P3/1.2GHz with 512MiB of SDRAM. In fact, the only reason I got the 'gdm' running at all is because I've never had time to learn the routines for "manually" connecting to a router with WPA2 security (after all, the 'nm-applet' is really smooth). But today I just had it. Lately, X has been eating up my RAM (and swap), and it's just not efficient. I looked in /etc/ but I had no 'wpa_supplicant.conf' file there, but(!) a directory called 'wpa_supplicant/' that contained three files (action_wpa.sh, functions.sh, ifupdown.sh). I looked at those but they were very confusing and I really don't seem needy to care for those.

As it turned out, the only thing I needed to do to successfully connect was the following:


sudo -i
wpa_passphrase NAMEOFMYSSID myactualwpapassphrase > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
wpa_supplicant -B -ieth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
dhclient eth1Done!

I am now online with my machine. Of course, I will probably get issues when I eventually decide to reboot it. Oh, wait. In fact, as I'm running Ubuntu Desktop it will launch GDM and automatically connect with the nm-applet then anyways, so it's cool. However...

gewone@LOSANGELES:~$ uptime
22:47:53 up 163 days, 14:17, 6 users, load average: 0.00, 0.00, 0.03

As you may realize, I have no plans on rebooting my laptop anytime soon. But when I do, I guess those few lines in '/etc/network/interfaces' will do the trick; sort of like an 'AUTOEXEC.BAT' executing (more or less) the commands I ran just now. Awesome.

Again, big thanks for this thread!

Hi. I'm new with these stuff so I hope I'm not being very stupid here. My problem is that in step 6, where you have to add the two lines, my
"sudo gedit /etc/network/interfaces" doesn't look like the example "iface eth0 inet static
address 192.168.1.15
netmask 255.255.255.0
wireless-essid my_essid
gateway 192.168.1.1
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -ieth0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant"

but it looks like this:
# This file describes the network interfaces available on your system
# and how to activate them. For more information, see interfaces(5).

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
#NetworkManager#auto eth0
#NetworkManager#iface eth0 inet dhcp


Does anybody know what am I to do? Also, when my laptop starts I get this message "the disk drive for /dev/mapper/crypyswap1 is not ready yet or not present.
Any help is very appreciated. Thank you

Can't connect to my wireless network

I followed these tutorials
Configure the rtl8190 with ndiswrapper:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1433401
Configure wpa_supplicant:
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=263136



Here is my /etc/network/interfaces file:


auto lo
iface lo inet dhcp (I changed this value from loopback to dhcp)
pre-up wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -wlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
post-down killall -q wpa_supplicant

And here's my wpa_supplicant.conf file:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
#ap_scan=2

network={
ssid="2WIRE201"
scan_ssid=1
proto=WPA RSN
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
pairwise=CCMP TKIP

psk=2efdade6c94ad65fda3e453879cf0a81a8cd09ec3fe188 6154c0ba0c35478d13
}


My router is configured to accept wpa-tkip and wpa2-aes so why am I getting this message when I type this:


sudo wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
