    can't get WPA-PSK to work


    I have my wireless link working without encryption, but have been unable to make it work with WPA-PSK. My wpa_supplicant.conf is below. I've tried running debug mode, but don't know how to interpret the result.

    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
    ctrl_interface_group=wheel
    ap_scan=2
    update_config=1

    network={
    ssid="fleur1"
    scan_ssid=1
    proto=WPA RSN
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    pairwise=CCMP TKIP
    group=CCMP TKIP
    psk="passphrase"
    }

    I don't use wpa_supplicant anymore. I just use the NetworkManager daemon to connect. I don't think that it even uses wpa_supplicant.
    Please do not send Private Messages to me with requests for help. I will not reply.

    Which card do you have and which distro are you using?
    Have you tried this command:
    Code:
    wpa_passphrase YOURESSID YOURPASSHRASE
    This will generate some code similar to this.
    Code:
    network={
           ssid="2WIRE900"
           #psk="4685001556"
    psk=6d1b2c60c2b756f370b26f3dcf035a72d814ea0be10c0ce94bd32636b15303ee
    Now you need to copy this to your WPA_supplicant.conf file.
    It'd really help to know which distro you are using as not all distros keep their config files in the same place. For example I tried following several HOWTO's only to find out that my machine (Gentoo) keeps all their WPA_supplicant info in /etc/wpa_supplicant/
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
