I had my Netgear PCMCIA card set up via the madwifi instructions here:

http://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic.php?t=122435

but it started working only intermittently after a baselayout upgrade. I'd like to set it up via wpa_supplicant now. I've made the necessary changes to my router's config, and set up my wpa_supplicant.conf file like this:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
network={
ssid="network1"
proto=WPA
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
psk="mypassword"
}

If I try to run wpa_supplicant manually I get:

system4 ~ # wpa_supplicant -w -d -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -iath0 -Dmadwifi
Configuration file '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf' -> '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf'

and it continues like that. Can anyone help me figure this out? I
can double up on the debugging output if anyone thinks it will be useful.

Looks like it cannot find the AP

Ensure that it's broadcasting its SSID

Hi UberLord, thanks for all your help thus far.

I have this in my Netgear router's config:

Enable Wireless Radio: Yes
Enable SSID Broadcast: Yes
Fragmentation Threshold: 2346
CTS/RTS Threshold: 2346
Preamble Mode: Automatic

Does that seem right?

I should also mention that I'm currently online with that other set of wireless instructions of your's with the router set to no encryption. It must be broadcasting right?

Try this wpa_supplicant config

Code:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
ap_scan=1
network={
ssid="network1"
psk="mypassword"
}

YEAH! The output looks pretty damn good. The only thing is if I try to run '/etc/init.d/wpa_supplicant start' I get:

* Starting wpa_supplicant ...
* eth1 ...
eth1: unknown interface: No such device [ ok ]

The contents of /var/run/wpa_supplicant are as follows:

srwxrwx--- 1 root root 0 Mar 23 07:13 eth1

I think I need to get it to use ath0 instead. How can I do that?

Also I don't seem to be able to reach the Internet. Here's the output without debugging:

Why don't you try baselayout-1.11.10-r3 as it has wpa_supplicant support?

1) emerge baselayout-1.11.10-r3 and unstable versions of bash, sys-libs/readline and sysvinit
2) remove wpa_supplicant from the default runlevel
Code:

rc-update del wpa_supplicant
rc

3) configure /etc/conf.d/net for wpa_supplicant
Code:

modules=( "wpa_supplicant" )
wpa_supplicant_ath0="-Dmadwifi"

4) Go!
Code:

/etc/init.d/net.ath0 start

UberLord, YOU ARE THE MAN.

I'm using ~x86 baselayout, bash, readline, and sysvinit. I added what you specified to my blank /etc/conf.d/net and issued 'rc'. ath0 came right up. This is too great.

What does 'rc' do? Does it just make sure everything is running that's supposed to be running based on 'rc-update -s'?

Do I still need madwifi-driver and wireless-tools?

You still need madwifi-driver.
You only need wireless tools if you're only going to use wpa_supplicant.

Damn. I rebooted to watch everything come up fresh, but now I always get:

* Starting wpa_supplicant on ath0 ... [ ok ]
* timed out [ !! ]

The only thing I changed before rebooting was upgrading sysvinit from 2.85-r1 to 2.6. I have since emerged back to the latter with no luck.

I've been doing all of this in 2.6.7, and when I to boot 2.6.11 I get an 'ath0 does not exist' error instead of the above. That's the same thing I was getting before I started working on wpa_supplicant. I'm not sure why those two kernels would have different configs for ath0.

Have you reinstalled the necessary tools against your new kernel? It looks like your drivers need to be recompiled:
Code:
emerge madwifi-tools madwifi-driver

It's probably not a bad idea to do the same with wpa_supplicant, wireless-tools, baselayout, etc... (although I'm not sure if it is absolutely needed)

They don't - however only one kernel has the ath0 driver!

I suggest booting a 2.6.11 kernel, ensure that /usr/src/linux points to 2.6.11 sources and then re-emerge madwifi-driver

Reboot and you should be working

I've tried booting into 2.6.11, making sure /usr/src/linux points to the right source, emerging madwifi-driver and madwifi-tools, and rebooting but I get the same errors as before. Two of these are printed:

ath0: error fetching interface information: device not found

followed by:

ath0 does not exist

a couple lines later.

I've also tried booting into 2.6.7, changing /usr/src/linux to point to that source, emerging madwifi-driver and madwifi-tools, and rebooting but it does this as before:

* Starting wpa_supplicant on ath0 ... [ ok ]
* timed out [ !! ]

Running wpa_supplicant manually gives me the same output from my first post. What could the problem be?

All of my packages and etc files are now updated and this problem persists. I have also unmerged all kernels builds, rm -rf 'ed them, emerged hardened-dev-sources (2.6.11), re-emerged madwifi-driver and madwifi-tools, and restarted, but the results are the same. Here is where I'm at:

system4 ~ # rc
* Starting ath0
* Bringing up ath0
* Configuration not set for ath0 - assuming dhcp
* dhcp
* ath0 does not exist [ !! ]

What can I do to make ath0 exist?

Add ath_pci to /etc/modules.autoload.d

You may need to add wlan_tkip (for wpa) and/or wlan_wep (for wep) *after* ath_pci

I do have ath_pci in /etc/modules.autoload.d/kernel-2.6 and it always loads at startup without any errors.

system4 ~ # modprobe wlan_tkip
system4 ~ # rc
* Starting ath0
* Bringing up ath0
* Configuration not set for ath0 - assuming dhcp
* dhcp
* ath0 does not exist

Make that:

Everything you've posted says you don't have the correct kernel module installed

Code:

uberpc roy # dmesg | grep ath
ath_hal: module license 'Proprietary' taints kernel.
ath_hal: 0.9.14.9 (AR5210, AR5211, AR5212, RF5111, RF5112, RF2413)
ath_rate_onoe: 1.0
ath_pci: 0.9.4.12 (EXPERIMENTAL)
ath0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps
ath0: 11g rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps 6Mbps 9Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps 24Mbps 36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps
ath0: mac 5.6 phy 4.1 radio 1.7

ath0: Use hw queue 0 for WME_AC_BE traffic
ath0: Use hw queue 1 for WME_AC_BK traffic
ath0: Use hw queue 2 for WME_AC_VI traffic
ath0: Use hw queue 3 for WME_AC_VO traffic
ath0: Atheros 5212: mem=0xf0120000, irq=201
ath0: no IPv6 routers present


If you don't get anything like that after modprobe ath_pci then you probably do not have an atheros wifi chipset.
Maybe post the output of lspic?

It was working 100% of the time before a baselayout update a while back, and about 50% of the time after that until I tried to change over to wpa_supplicant.

The problem seems to be with 2.6.11 grabbing the driver. I just fixed my /etc/make.profile link and 'emerge -pDu world' now wants to install linux-headers-2.6 for the first time. I'm hoping that, re-emerging madwifi-driver, and restarting gets this moving.

PostPosted: Wed Mar 30, 2005 11:58 pm    Post subject: From WEP to WPA Reply with quote

Hello there,
I'm also getting some trouble with my wifi... I used to connect with just WEP 128 bit encryption and it worked fine. As I understand that WPA is better, I have configured my router for WPA with PSK. I mean that I have left all the settings regarding WEP untouched (so I still have a 128 bit key defined), and I enabled WPA with PSK (TKIP), and defined a lovely password (are there any forbidden characters in the password? it's all ascii anyway)
My problem is that I don't manage to connect now.

My wpa_supplicant. conf file is:
Code:

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
network={
        ssid="myssid"
        #key_mgmt=NONE
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        psk="my-psk-phrase"
        pairwise=TKIP
        group=TKIP
        wep_key0=mywepkey
}


I've tried with/without the wep_key0 field but it never works.


If I manually run wpa_supplicant I get this: (with some editing for the keys and stuff)

Code:

Configuration file '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf' -> '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf'

I abbreviated it since it doesn't stop by itself.

Any hint? Should I just go back to WEP??!

Thanks a lot.

No such luck. Still getting the same 'ath0 not found'. What do I need to look at to see why that error is coming up? Everything is in place.

OK, the kernel issue is fixed. It turns out I didn't have any PCMCIA support built in to my 2.6.11. Sorry about that.

I'm back to the point where trying to start the net.ath0 daemon times out and running wpa_supplicant manually says there is "No suitable AP found." What can I do from here?

Ensure that your AP is broadcasting it's SSID.

Also, if you have wireless-tools installed, check if it can find it

Code:

ifconfig ath0 up
iwlist ath0 scan
