Stupidly complex wireless set up.
I've spent the last couple of days trying to set up a wireless connection to an encrypted network at my Uni, but I refuse to go to the IT services guys - just because I'm too stubborn.
After adding a WPA Supplicant config file, when I go on to use the 'wpa_supplicant' command in terminal, I always get given the response that my driver is not supported.
So far I have been putting in my Interface name (card name) as 'ath0' and I have been, up until now, pretty sure that that driver name was 'ath_pci' ... but I'm guessing that is probably wrong as Linux isn't liking me at the moment.
I know that wireless works since I am currently using it on the Uni's unencrypted/more restricting wireless network. The configuration of which using 'Interface: Wifi 802.11g (ath0)' / 'Driver: 11g_ath_pci' (and I have also tried using the name 11g_ath_pci as my driver name too).
If I am correct (and my knowledge of Linux is pretty poor), ath_pci is a name used by Madwifi for its Atheros drivers???
So in short ... what the hell is my Wireless card driver name if it isn't ath_pci/11g_ath_pci/Madwifi?
Cheers in advanced
PS ... to give you some more info to work on. These are the instructions my Uni gives. So far I've tried both install types, manual seems to easier as it gives me more feedback.
I can give you more info if you need but I am ... reasonably ... confident that ath0 is the interface name and the driver is Madwifi, it is just something about the driver name I am inputting that is wrong.
