WAP with WPA encryption
I'm trying to configure madwifi: wpa_supplicant to see my D-link 7200AP. I had a working WAP under a non encripted ESSID and installed the pkg and configured wpa_suppicant.conf file. I ran the passphrase "EESID" passphrase from root and got a psk. The problem I have is my D-link AP can only use a maximum of 63 charactures, and the wpa_supplicant file wants 64 to run. So what I have is the atheros chip will start but not see the WPA encripted D-link WAP. I could give a lot more info but I'm not sure what you may need. What am I missing? Thanks
I don't quite understand...... why does the psk have to be 64 characters long?
I don't see why it has to be 64 either? but if I don't use 64 char. it gives an error saying invalid psk when you run the debugging command. also when I run the wpa_passphrase "SSID" passphrase command if generates a 64 char. psk.
The D-link WAP will see 8-63 char. Everything is configured to madwifi specifications on this site: http://madwifi.org/wiki/UserDocs/Distro/Slackware
