Ndiswrapper & wpa_supplicant config

Postby karthik » 2006-02-10 22:37

Hi,

Would really appreciate if someone can help me with this issue.

Trying to setup a wireless card based on Realtek 8185 chipset with ndiswrapper 1.9 and wpa_supplicant 0.4.7 on Sarge (kernel 2.4.27). Executing "wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -Dndiswrapper -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf" indicates that the network is connected but I am not able to ping any hosts. Also, my router does not indicate that the device is attached.

Followed these setup steps:
1) built ndiswrapper from source and did "make install"
2) ndiswrapper -e <path to inf file>
3) ndiswrapper -m
4) added ndiswrapper to /etc/modules
5) added package wpa_supplicant and configured it as below:
---------------------- wpa_supplicant.conf ----------------------------
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0

eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1

# WPA-PSK
network={
ssid="MYSSID"
key_mgmt=NONE
wep_key0=XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
wep_tx_keyidx=0
}
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------- /etc/default/wpasupplicant --------------------
ENABLED=1
OPTIONS="-iwlan0 -Dndiswrapper -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf"
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

6) Configured interfaces file as below:
------------------------ /etc/network/interfaces -------------------------
# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

# The primary network interface
auto eth0
iface eth0 inet static
name Ethernet LAN card
address 192.168.0.3
netmask 255.255.255.0
broadcast 192.168.0.255
network 192.168.0.0
gateway 192.168.0.1

# Wireless
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
pre-up /etc/init.d/wpasupplicant start
pre-up sleep 5
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

7) To test, I tried "wpa_supplicant -iwlan0 -Dndiswrapper -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf"... This gives the following output:
--------------------- wpa_supplicant -------------------------------------
ioctl[SIOCSIWPMKSA]: No such device
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: No such device
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: No such device
ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: No such device

Associated with 00:0f:b5:7a:32:e2
CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to 00:0f:b5:7a:32:e2 completed (auth)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

8) iwconfig output as follows:
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Uhm, everything seems fine from here.
Try running a dhclient wlan0 and see what happens....

I'm not sure if this was a typo, but the command to install ndiswrapper drivers is "ndiswrapper -i /path/to/.inf/file" (no quotes), not "ndiswrapper -e". The -e switch uninstalls drivers.
