[SOLVED] Arch Linux Wireless Configuration
I've recently installed the latest release of Archlinux. Setup is fine, but i'm having trouble setting up the wireless connection. Let me just start by saying I can get the wireless working without any security at all, so I know it's working fine. When I installed Arch I selected the base packages and the base-devil? base-daemon? packages, and made sure that every package relating to the internet or wireless was selected and installed.

Wireless Security: WPA-PSK
I have read the beginners guide wiki, and from that I have read the wireless setup wiki, which lead me onto the wpa_supplicant configuration for WPA-PSK security.
In my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file I have the following:
*NOTE* I have tried many many variations of this config, by adding things like "proto=RSN" "key_mgmt=WPA-PSK" "pairwise=CCMP TKIP" or "pairwise=TKIP" "group=CCMP TKIP" or "group=TKIP". Countless numbers of things *NOTE*
I then type the command:
then to see if its associated I type:
iwconfig wlan0 essid PWNT
and nothing changes, it just shows all the information, and says "access point: Not-Associated" and doesn't get a mac address for it or anything.
It's as if its not taking any notice of the /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf file at all.
I know the wireless card is all being picked up correctly because 1.I've had it connected when I turn the routers wireless security off and 2. if I type ifconfig wlan0 it shows all the information on it up. I can also scan for the access points by doing iwlist wlan0 scan and it shows all the access points available including mine "PWNT".
Can anoyne help? is there something I need to do to make it read the wpa_supplicant.conf file?.
