    wpa_supplicant, Debian Etch


    yesyerday i installed a fairly new rt61 wireless driver in etch. the driver is installed correctly. network manager scans and finds my home network with no problem. the problem comes in when i try to connect to the network, as wpa is not an option. i configured wpa_supplicant.conf as ;
    ctrl_interface =/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    ctrl_interface=_group=0
    ap_scan=1
    fast_reauth=1

    network={
    ssid=ssid
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    proto=WPA
    pairwise=TKIP
    group=TKIP
    psk=encrypted passwd

    what is wrong? anyone help?

    I'm guessing here but there seem to be two syntax errors:
    Code:
    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant    # don't put a space between 'ctrl_interface' and '='
    ctrl_interface_group=0                    # don't put '=' between ctrl_interface' and '_group'
    And I presume that you're closing the curly brace at the end of the 'network' block?

    wpa_supplicant

    turns out it wasnt wpa_supplicant causing the problem. with the rt61 wireless driver that i was using i had to use the iwpriv commands from a terminal. works great. thanks for all your help
