Hey everyone!

I am having trouble with my AR9285 Atheros Wireless Device, or at least I think so. The problem is /etc/init.d/net.wlan0 won't start no matter the kernel options or config files I change. Hope someone is able to tell mi what is wrong with it.

Here I send you some files that could be useful.


This is my lspci

This comes out from ' /etc/init.d/net.wlan0 start '

Code:

* Bringing up interface wlan0
 *   Starting wpa_supplicant on wlan0 ...ctrl_iface exists and seems to be in use - cannot override it
Delete '/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=wheel/wlan0' manually if it is not used anymore
Failed to initialize control interface '/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=wheel'.
You may have another wpa_supplicant process already running or the file was
left by an unclean termination of wpa_supplicant in which case you will need
to manually remove this file before starting wpa_supplicant again.

This is my /etc/conf.d/net file

Code:

# This blank configuration will automatically use DHCP for any net.*

config_eth0="dhcp"


modules="wpa_supplicant"
config_wlan0="dhcp"
wpa_cli_wlan0="-G3600"
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-D nl80211"








This is /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

Done it but still get this result after typing:

wpa_supplicant -Bd -Dwext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

You may have another wpa_supplicant process already running or the file was
left by an unclean termination of wpa_supplicant in which case you will need
to manually remove this file before starting wpa_supplicant again.

So I cannot connect to the net, which is WEP secured. I also changed the proto variable in wpa_supplicant.conf to WEP ant I get the same result. Any suggestions?

How about doing what you're being told to do:
Code:
Delete '/var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0' manually if it is not used anymore
Failed to initialize control interface 'DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=wheel'.
You may have another wpa_supplicant process already running or the file was

to manually remove this file before starting wpa_supplicant again.

I was about to suggest what Gusar said but wrapped in some tests.

What does
Code:
ifconfig -a
show. wlan0 shoule be listed.

Does /var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0 exist?
if so set wlan0 to stopped with
Code:
/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 stop
/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 zap
zap removes any confuson the startop system may have about wlan0 being stopped.
Check for /var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0 again and remove it if it exists.

What happens if you do
Code:
/etc/init.d/net.wlan0 start
now.

This is the outcome of ifconfig -a

Code:

eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 54:42:49:01:19:a7 
          UP BROADCAST MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1

          collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
          RX bytes:0 (0.0 B)  TX bytes:0 (0.0 B)



I stopped and zapped net.wlan0. Then I removed /var/run/wpa_supplicant/wlan0.

After starting wlan0 again I got this:


Code:

 * Bringing up interface wlan0
 *   Starting wpa_supplicant on wlan0 ... [ ok ]
 *   Starting wpa_cli on wlan0 ... [ ok ]
 *   Backgrounding ... ...
*WARNING: net.wlan0 has started, but is inactive


I assumed that meant I could scan for wifi's but couldn't do it, the outcome I got is:

#iwlist wlan0 scan

Code:

wlan0       Interface doesn't support scanning : Device or resource busy

sintactika,

Code:
 * Bringing up interface wlan0
 *   Starting wpa_supplicant on wlan0 ... [ ok ]
 *   Starting wpa_cli on wlan0 ... [ ok ]
 *   Backgrounding ... ...
*WARNING: net.wlan0 has started, but is inactive
is fairly normal.

Does ifconfig -a show wlan0 with an IP address?
What is in dmesg now?
wgetpaste it and thell the URL.

Does yor system have a hardware switch of key combination to turn off the WiFi transmitter?
Is it on or off?

If the switch is read by software, you may need rfkill support in your kernel and the rfkill userspace tool.

What happens if you do
Code:
ifconfig wlan0 up
then try to scan ?

Install wireless-toold and look at the wireless part of the setup with
Code:
iwconfig wlan0

Post the output - there is lots of useful dianostic information there.

Here is the iwconfig:

Code:

As you said, there is no IP assigned to wlan0.

The outcome for dmesg is:


Code:

[ 7384.521104] eth0: no IPv6 routers present


I couldn't find anything about the ath device.

I didn't understand what you meant by
Code:
wgetpaste it and thell the URL.


My computer has a switch to turn on the WiFi transmitter, that's the first thing I checked (found a link for teaching noobs how to configure wpa and the first thing on a TODO list was that, which saved me from having embarrasing moments, :wink: ) And yes, it in ON.


Afterwards I typed '#ifconfig wlan0 up', scanned and voilá! I could finally see the wifis available:

These are not all the wifis available though, I cut the file...


I had wireless-tools already installed and checked for wlan0, here the result


The output of 'iwconfig wlan0' is

Code:
wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  ESSID:off/any 
          Mode:Managed  Access Point: Not-Associated   Tx-Power=14 dBm   
          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:on



And yet when trying to connect the network is unreachable.

sintactika,

There are a few typos in the quote from my post - sorry about that.

wgetpaste is a program you can use to put files and command output onto a website. There are many such sites, all collectively known a s pastebins. Maybe after pastebin.com When you put something onto a pastebin site so that we can read it, the site gives you a URL.

You can do
Code:
emerge --info | wgetpaste
Which has just returned
:
Your paste can be seen here: http://bpaste.net/show/47539/
Thats my emerge --info output by way of a sample, or for a file
Code:
$ wgetpaste /usr/src/linux/.config
Your paste can be seen here: http://bpaste.net/show/47541/
which is my current kernel configuration file.

You can do the same thing after you install wgetpaste
