Full Version: Which Rom For Sl-5600 To Use Wpa-psk/tkip

Hello,
Just picked up an SL-5600 on ebay, my first Linux PDA. I need to be able to use the wireless network where I go to school. They use WPA-PSK and TKIP. I haven't bought a wireless card yet, but what I really need to figure out is if there is a 5600 ROM that that supports this (not real comfortable compiling my own ROM). I see Cacko does, but there is no SL-5600 version of Cacko, is that correct?
I've poked around quite a bit on the forums, but most of the references for WPA I've seen are old or discuss compiling your own ROM.
I'd appreciate any advice on a CF card/ROM combo that will make WPA easy.
Thanks and regards,
-Phil

I'd like the same information, for an SL-5500, sort of. I have a Linksys WCF12 wireless card that I'd like to use (if possible) to connect to our campus network. Ohio State's webpage on wireless campus connectivity says: a machine running Linux operating system with an open source client that supports the following should be able to connect to OSUWireless-Network:

* Encryption: WPA Radius with TKIP key exchange
* Authentication: 802.1x with PEAP and MSCHAPv2
* SSID should be set to osuwireless

Is this possible with any ROM, given my hardware? If so, how do I do it?

I know that under the SharpROM 3.10 using Qtopia, my D-Link Air card works fine. I have to go under Settings->Network and configure for the wireless connection, but all the items above are listed in those configuration tabs.
You'll have to check with someone else about other ROMs.

Are you using WPA? That seems to be the hangup.

No. I am presently using WEP, as that is all that I see available.
