Hi,

I emerged the current wpa_supplicant succesfully but I have problems to connect if wpa_supplicant is enabled. Without it my WLAN-Card (PCI Prism-Chipset, notebook) runs flawlessly with the prism54 kernel-module and enabled open WEP encryption.

Now I've enabled wpa_supplicant and configured it. When I try to start the connection with "/etc/init.d/net.eth1 start" I get the following error:

Code:
 * Starting eth1
 *   Starting wpa_supplicant on eth1 ...
ioctl[SIOCSIWPMKSA]: Operation not supported
ioctl[PRISM54_HOSTAPD]: Operation not supported
wpa_driver_prism54_set_countermeasures - not yet implemented
ioctl[PRISM54_HOSTAPD]: Operation not supported


The WLAN-connection is still offline. My router is configured properly. Windows XP can establish the connection.


Here are my configs:

/etc/conf.d/net.eth1
Code:
modules_eth1=("wpa_supplicant")
wpa_supplicant_eth1="-Dprism54"


/etc/conf.d/wpa_supplicant
Code:
INTERFACES="eth1"
ARGS="-w"
ARGS_eth1="-Dprism54"


/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Code:
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0
eapol_version=1
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1

network={
   ssid="MySSID"
   key_mgmt=NONE
   wep_key0=MyWlanKey
   wep_tx_keyidx=0
   priority=5
}



Are the any suggestions?

Don't use WPA or get a card that can do WPA in Linux.

Prism54 cannot (unless someone can tell me otherwise) do WPA under Linux - unless you use ndiswrapper and windows drivers. But I've not had any luck there either.

Now I use the wlan-card with WEP and without a special tool like wpa_supplicant under Gentoo. Is there a way to configure ifplugd that it detects automaticly that I switched on the antenna with a special button of the notebook keyboard?
