I am trying to get the wpa working on my simpad but did not get anywhere so far. The simpad has a Linksys WCF12 wireless card. I suppose my access point is poperly configured since a nokia 770 and an apple powerbook are working with it without a hitch.

The access point sees the client

hostapd: ath0: STA 00:0c:41:dd:80:cf IEEE 802.11: associated

but after this there are no further references in the access point's logfile.

wcf-12 card:

NICID: id=0x801b v1.0.0 (PRISM III PCMCIA (SST parallel flash))
PRIID: id=0x0015 v1.1.1
STAID: id=0x001f v1.7.4 (station firmware)


# This is a basic configuration for WPA with pre-shared keys (WPA-PSK)

Does anyone have wpa working on the simpad with such a configuration ?
If so, can you post the configuration files ?

What I've found is that WPA in familiar 0.84 is way too old to work properly. Using the same config on a Zaurus CL-1000 (running openzaurus) and on a simpad, I can connect without problems to my WPA-PSK network with the Zaurus, while the Simpad just won't connect, no mather what I try.
Maybe next version will have a updated wpa_supplicant
