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
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
     wpa-conf /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
     wpa-driver hostap

and the content of wpa_supplicant.conf is

root@simpad:~$ cat /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

I can see my WLAN with iwlist scan :

wlan0     Scan completed :
          Cell 01 - Address: 00:04:0E:D4:F4:B1
                    Frequency:2.422 GHz (Channel 3)
                    Signal level=-68 dBm  Noise level=-89 dBm
                    Encryption key:on
                    Bit Rates:1 Mb/s; 2 Mb/s; 5.5 Mb/s; 11 Mb/s
                    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
