one of the things that I found of need to do, when I was using ndiswrapper (I've now moved to rt73 driver) to have it working, was that I needed to restart the network at each boot, to have it working.
Maybe this is why after rebooting it stopped working for you?
I had to run the following command:
Code:sudo /etc/init.d/networking restart
The problem I am facing is that the connection needs to be re-set every couple of minutes while the computer is running- ie it does not need to be re-booted to need to wake-up.
See the new thread:
Nice try, tho, thanks!
Ok, I've been playing with this for a couple of days. Our network guys tell me the setup is PEAP-TLS. I've tried every combination in the network-manager, wpa-enterprise, wpa2-enterprise, etc. It seems to connect then drop the connection, like something is wrong with the authentication handshake.
Here's my settings for wireless in XP:
Under the network properties "Association Tab".
Network Authentication is set to "Open"
Data Encryption is set to "WEP"
Under the Authentication Tab:
"Enable IEEE 802.1x authentication for this network" checked
EAP Type: Protected EAP(PEAP)
Authenticate as a computer when computer information is available. Checked.
Under PEAP Properties, the
"Validate server certificate" is checked along with our company certificate.
Then in the Select authentication pull down it has "Secured Password (EAP-MSCHAPv2) selected, which uses my domain/user creditentials.
Under the Connection tab it has "connect when in range".
This all works fine under XP, but when I boot into Linux, and select WPA or WPA2 enterprise, mschapv2, etc. it doesn't work. I've got the certificate on the machine in both .p7b and .pem formats. It looks like it gets close, but it doesn't come up. In the username/password dialog I give the domain/username and my domain login.
Any help would be appriciated.
Card is built in laptop with the intel 2200 chipset, works fine at home and everywhere else. I also have a drawer full of USB wireless adapters I can try.
A follow-up on my newbie-post from long ago: (search on username)
I didn't succeed in getting WPA to work on two pcmcia wifi cards while the cards were known to work perfectly with WEP: one was Linksys WPC11 (I don't remember which version), the other a Senao NL-2511CD. In the end it was the cards' fault: they were pretty old 802.11b-only cards that turned out not to support WPA.
I replaced them with a new usb dongle --- Azurewave AW-GU210 --- which immediately worked under 7.04 and 7.10. However, after an hour (or sometimes 3) or so it would overheat, I think, and fail to connect for several minutes. Possibly because it tries to move fast broadband over USB1.1?
This I replaced with a similar Belkin usb dongle that has been working perfectly with the same setups --- USB1.1 on a 2.2ghz celeron desktop and on a celeron 1.1ghz laptop.
I have a working wireless connection when it it unencrypted, but I've tried following your guide to connect to my university's LEAP network and when I restart the networking service I get the following:

Please post the output of (while your are near the network:
Then also let me know what wireless adapter you have got & what chipset it uses. Not all adapters are PEAP-capable.sudo iwlist scan
How do I ascertain this?2. No firewall & configuration tool is running (e.g. Firestarter).
If you wanna' help, great. But explain as you go. Otherwise, you're just giving away fish, and not the important stuff - pole, bait, net, etc...
Still a beginnerd, but not absolute...
