hi

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.

Simpad:

root@simpad:~# uname -a
Linux simpad 2.4.27-vrs1-pxa1-jpm1 #1 Tue Aug 15 04:36:16 CEST 2006 armv4l unknown

root@simpad:~# ifup wlan0
Configuration file '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf' -> '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf'
Reading configuration file '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf'
ctrl_interface='/var/run/wpa_supplicant'
ctrl_interface_group=0
Line: 5 - start of a new network block
SSID - hexdump_ascii(len=4):
74 65 73 74 test
PSK (ASCII passphrase) - hexdump_ascii(len=8):
68 61 6c 6c 6f 31 32 33 hallo123
PSK (from passphrase) - hexdump(len=32): ea ae 6b d0 6d 97 4e aa e6 a6 24 d8 b3 5c 20 a3 0b f3 98 ec b6 d3 1a 9e 30 fa f4 65 c2 6a 84 28
Priority group 0
id=0 ssid='test'
Daemonize..
udhcpc (v0.9.9-pre) started

No lease, forking to background.
root@simpad:~#


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)


/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf:

# This is a basic configuration for WPA with pre-shared keys (WPA-PSK)
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
network={
ssid="test"
psk="hallo123"
}


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

yeah, pretty old thread. Still, people may read it in hope to find an answer.
I can confirm WPA is not working by default (who knows why) but there is a solution (at least for Prism / hostap) described at HowToUseWPA.
Thanks so much for this instructions to the unknown author.
