    Default Problem with wpa_supplicant

    Hello together,

    at first excuse my bad english. The last time i wrote in english was in school .

    Since i have done the update from 10.3 to 11.0 the encryption with wpa doesn't work. With WEP there are no problems. I've a PCMCIA W-Lan Card (Netgear WG 511 made in Taiwan) running with ndiswrapper.

    Here is the content of my wpa_supplicant.conf:

    Code:
    ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
        eapol_version=1
        ap_scan=1
        network={
           ssid="Casino"
           scan_ssid=1
           proto=WPA
           key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
           pairwise=TKIP
           group=TKIP
           psk="12345678"
           priority=2
        }
    The wpa_supplicant is load at boot. But he doesn't connect to my card.

    So i've tried to load wpa_supplicant manually. An then i get this output:

    Code:
    linux-s9p6:/etc/wpa_supplicant # wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

    Do you have any ideas why opensuse 11.0 doesn't connect with wpa?

    I'm happy for every help i can get.

    I have the same problem but also with WEP. May be it's because of the manual configuration, i tried with network manager and sometimes it works.

    In the meantime i've tried everything but nothing work.

    At least i downloaded Kubuntu 8.04 and boot with the Live-CD. And what should i say? It work immediately!

    There is no ndiswrapper running or something like that. Kubuntu load the prism54pci driver and wpa_supplicant automatically at boot up.

    The next thing i try, is to run my netgear with the prism54 modul on opensuse and delete everything from ndiswrapper.

    I'll give you report.
