    wpa_supplicant


    I have knoppix and as always the best part is trying to get various distros to work with my router...
    Ndiswrapper works and I have successfully installed the router the only problem is every time I try to start wpa_supplicant with ndiswrapper it errors...Is there something more I am supposed to write I believe it has something to do with the wpa_supplicant .config file I'm sure its something simple but if I can just get the encryption working then I can connect to my network :O

    You need to set up a wpa_supplicant.conf yourself before using it, it should look like this

    network={
    ssid="<your essid>"
    scan_ssid=1
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    psk="<WPA key>"
    }

    Sorry, I forgot about this thread. I thought you were using WPA and not WEP as you detailed in the title of the message.

    Read this UserDocs/FirstTimeHowTo - MadWifi - Trac
    , the section you want is Connecting to an AP with WEP

    a) No I didn't wpa_supplicant provides support for WEP
    b) can you just tell me where to put the config file you've given me everything else I need X_X...the error doesn't tell me where the config file is supposed to be...

    Put it in any place, just tell wpa_supplicant where is the file

    well I'm posting this on knoppix but, theres still one problem why does Kwlan constantly spam wlan0 is connected in the bottom right....I got it the first time....

    P.S:Why do they bother to include "configuration utilities" with knoppix so far not a single one has worked for me and they have all managed to be extremely buggy especially kwlan.
