    pre-up iwconfig ra0 mode Managed
    pre-up iwpriv ra0 set AuthMode=WPAPSK
    pre-up iwpriv ra0 set EncrypType=TKIP
    pre-up iwpriv ra0 set WPAPSK=� Wachtwoord_van_je_netwerk�
    pre-up ifconfig ra0 up
    auto ra0
    after restarting i was immediately online

    Does this approach work on Gutsy ??? It does on Feisty....yesterady I had to get back to feisty after an upgrading because wless did not work and I forgot to try this approach....

    @jimisdead:

    ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
    You card does not seem to support WPA2. Please try WPA1 (WPA, TKIP) instead. That might do.

    It should as far as I know. But frankly I never got WPA to work using this method.

    I can guarantee WPA does work using the approach above....I'm only afraid to install Gutsy again without having wless working....

    Can you tell me more about your hardware & driver? Perhaps the driver is the culprit.

    It's a netgear WG111 54Mbps USB dongle. plugged into an old compaq evo laptop running fully updated gutsy.

    I've tried the wext and the madwifi driver, neither has worked.

    I guess you will have to do some googling on the web and try to find out if others have been able to set it up using WPA. I'll try to find something useful as well.

    Re: HOWTO: Wireless Security - WPA1, WPA2, LEAP, etc.

    Recently upgraded to Gutsy. I have a Linksys card, RT2500 chipset. My previous /etc/network/interfaces could not be used to authenticate myself using this type of scheme:
    Code:
    iface ra0 inet dhcp
    pre-up iwconfig ra0 essid "networkname"
    pre-up iwconfig ra0 mode Managed
    pre-up iwpriv ra0 set AuthMode=WPAPSK
    pre-up iwpriv ra0 set EncrypType=TKIP
    pre-up iwpriv ra0 set WPAPSK="unencryptedpw"
    pre-up ifconfig ra0 up
    auto ra0
    I tried using Ubuntu's network manager which now has a choice to pick WPA1/2 encryption. After doing that, it wrote something different to the /etc/network/interfaces file. It uses the 'wext' driver for instance, and it writes an encrypted WPA password to the file.

    After executing `sudo ifup ra0`, I got a few errors ([SIOCSAUTH]: Operation not supported or something like that), but the internet connection was established. After adding `auto ra0` to the file, it even fails to establish a connection during startup. And I think it is because of those errors.

    I am going to reinstall Gutsy tonight, perhaps something else was corrupted or the like.

    Anyone else had the same thing? I am sorry I cannot post any real samples of the files yet (at work at this moment).

    Re: HOWTO: Wireless Security - WPA1, WPA2, LEAP, etc.

    Hi,

    Just thought it might be helpful to post my experience with setting this up.

    I've got an Acer Aspire 5630 laptop and have managed to get the wireless working to my d-com router using WPA2 with the following configuration:

    Code:
    root@our-laptop:/etc/network# cat interfaces
    auto lo
    iface lo inet loopback
    
    auto eth1
    iface eth1 inet dhcp
    wpa-driver wext
    wpa-ssid <your-ssid>
    wpa-ap-scan 1
    wpa-proto RSN
    wpa-pairwise TKIP
    wpa-group TKIP
    wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
    wpa-psk <get this using the wpa_passphrase utility>
    
    #auto eth0
    Then after restarting the networking this worked great. Thanks for a great OS and a great forum.
