Wpa Howto?
« on: May 28, 2008, 11:11:15 am »
Does anyone have a step-by-step guide for getting wpa running under pdaXrom?
I've got a SL-3200, D-Link DCF-660W, and am running beta3.  (actually... it's Daniels weeXpc.. but it's based off beta3.)

thanks,
Christopher.

It's simple:

Code: [Select]
wpa_passphrase YOUR_SSID YOUR_PASSPHRASE > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
If you're using WPA2/AES, it should loook something like this:

Code: [Select]
network={
ssid="YOUR_SSID"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
proto=RSN
group=CCMP
pairwise=CCMP
psk=(lots of gibberish)
}

(You have to add some lines yourself)

If you're using TKIP, the pairwise, proto, and/or group lines will be different, but I can't remember how ATM. They may not even be necessary.

I've also had issues connecting to a non-SSID-broadcasting network, so you may have to change that.

Well on pdaXii13 I had to make several changes to the pcmcia network scripts to get it working to my satisfaction.  I think the scripts were updated properly in the newer versions of pdaXrom. I can post my diffs if it helps anyone.

Do it, please. I'm running a script each time I want connection and I don't have time to play with this by myself

Sorry for the late reply.  Well I seem to have lost the original versions from pdaxii13, but here are the three files I changed

/etc/pcmcia/network
/etc/pcmcia/wireless
/etc/pcmcia/wireless.opts

These new scripts add new values that you can use in the wireless.opts options, examples are included.  You specify WPA=y to use WPA and WPADRIVER to specify a drive or I default to hostap.  You setup your /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf as usual.  For reference my home net, which uses WPA-PSK2, looks something like this:

network={
        ssid="MyHomeNetwork"
        scan_ssid=1
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        proto=WPA
        pairwise=CCMP TKIP
   group=CCMP TKIP
   psk="abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
}

With these scripts you should only need to setup the /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf and then add the necessary stanza to the wireless.opts for your network and you should be golden.  All I have to do is change schemes with cardctl (ex. cardctl -f Home) and I can switch configs and even different wpa_supplicant.conf entries.

Hope this helps! [ Invalid Attachment ]
