    wpasupplicant problem


    I am having some trouble with wpa. When I disable encryption, my wireless works fine.

    /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
    Code:
    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    network={
           ssid="myssid"
           scan_ssid=1
           proto=WPA2
           key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
           psk="testkey1"
    }
    dmesg|grep ipw
    Code:
    [4294698.053000] ipw2200: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2200/2915 Network Driver, 1.0.6
    [4294698.053000] ipw2200: Copyright(c) 2003-2004 Intel Corporation
    [4294698.055000] ipw2200: Detected Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG Network
    I should note that my wpa_supplicant file says ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant but I looked in /var/run and there is nothing like that there. What might I be missing?

    Please let me know if I should post any more information.

    I am running the newest Ubuntu.

    Thanks in advance,

    Could we get the errors that come up from wpa_supplicant, please?

    Code:
    #killall wpa_supplicant
    #wpa_supplicant -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i <eth device> -D ipw -d
    It will repeat itself in an attempt to keep reconnecting, so just cut out one copy of the loop.
