Hello friends,

i have installed the new stable image Angstrom-X11-2007.12-R14 from 1.April.
The first test showed an wrong script under /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wpasupplicant (from Ubuntu, it fails with sed of busybox not knowing --quite) get called.
So i just linked wpa-supplicant to wpasupplicant.
When i try to connect to my WPA-WLAN with an NetGear MA-401RA (Firmware PRI v1.1.1, STA v1.8.2), it will get no connection.
The cards is ok, under simpad i can connect to an open WLAN.
My interfaces looks like
CODE
root@simpad:~$ cat /etc/network/interfaces
# /etc/network/interfaces -- configuration file for ifup(8), ifdown(8)

# The loopback interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback


# Wireless interfaces
#
#
iface wlan0 inet static
     address 192.168.2.7
     netmask 255.255.255.0
     network 192.168.2.0
     broadcast 192.168.2.255
     wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
     wpa-driver hostap
#
#


and the content of wpa_supplicant.conf is

CODE
root@simpad:~$ cat /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1
network={
    ssid="BlueZone"
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    pairwise=TKIP
    group=TKIP
    psk="01234567890123"
    priority=1
}
network={
    ssid="carioca"
    key_mgmt=NONE
    priority=2
}


I can see my WLAN with iwlist scan :

CODE
wlan0     Scan completed :
          Cell 01 - Address: 00:04:0E:D4:F4:B1
                    ESSID:"BlueZone"
                    Mode:Master

                    Signal level=-68 dBm  Noise level=-89 dBm
                    Encryption key:on

                    Extra:bcn_int=100
                    Extra:resp_rate=10
                    IE: WPA Version 1
                        Group Cipher : TKIP
                        Pairwise Ciphers (1) : TKIP
                        Authentication Suites (1) : PSK


In /var/log/messages i only found :

My router is an Fritz!Box and another embedded linux device, my iLiad (e-book from iRex) is working fine with WPA-WLAN.
I'm shure my psk is ok, because it contains only digits [0-9] like above ... wink.gif

Attached is an log of the session with output of various commands (iwconfig, ifconfig, iwscan, lsmod etc.) and more content of /var/log/messages

Did anyone run succsessfully WPA with Angstrom 2007.12 on simpad ?
Or any guesses what else to try/check/do ...???

Best regards and thanks to all which work on Angstrom for Simpad

used firmware:
with the r15, it works immediately without any changes with the included firmware 1.7.4, located in /lib/firmware. It seems that there is an automated firmware update mechanism for this.
with r14, I had to do the update manually, there I used a 1.8.4.

Still a problems remains: After a reset, the wifi card usually does not work, so I have to manually plug the card out and in again.
Same happens often when I go to sleep mode.
I will further investigate here, if time permits.
Does reset and sleep work with your cards?? e.g. Siemens card?

one more thing, mr_nice,
can you send the wpa_supplicant fix (sed -n, see r15 thread) to the angstrom code base, I have no clue how to do it.

Hi, which mailing list? Which thread exactly do you mean? I am currently not able to follow every topic on the list. Can you please file a bug report about it to bugs.openembedded.org and make it block bug no 2595 . Include as many information as you can give me there.

thanks in advance
nice
