Thread: Where is AES encryption?

  1. #1

    Question Where is AES encryption?

    So my wireless card was recognized right out of the box. Im now trying to connect to my wireless network with Knetworkmanager. I use wpa2 with AES encryption. I have it setup for wpa2 but cant find the option for AES encryption. Only TKIP, CCMP, WEP 40, and WEP 104. So how do I setup for AES encrtption with opensuse 11?

    make sure you have the wpa-supplicant package installed, it provides support
    for the WPA/WPA2 encryption. WEP is sort of 'built-in'.

    Yup just checked yast and it says it already installed. Must be by default. Is there any other program that is good to use for wireless since I cannot get knetwork manager to work?

    So after doing some more reading seems CCMP is some sort of security add on to AES? So do I just choose CCMP when setting it up? Has anyone else been able to get WPA2-AES working on thier wireless with knetwork manager?

    Honest answer? Ditch Knetworkmanager and use the 'traditional method'.
    Selectable in the 'network devices -> network settings -> Global Options'
    page.

    Then use the 'overview' <EDIT> to set up your card as you desire. Yes, much
    more difficult to change settings if you roam somewhere away from your home
    wireless, but very reliable. Wait a few weeks, many of the issues with
    Knetworkmanager will be ironed out, maybe try again.
