Hey guys

I have the Broadcom 4318 chipset on my broadcom based wireless card.
It was working fine, now it keeps timing out whenever it tries to associate with my router...

I honestly can't think what the hell has happened, as far as I know I have done no updates since I sintalled it a couple of weeks back...

I'm using wpa_supplicant-0.6.9
Broadcom firmware-wl-4.150.10.5
kernel driver is as a module

in /etc/conf.d/net i have

Code:

modules=( "wpa_supplicant" )
config_wlan0=( "dhcp" )
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dwext"


My wpa_supplicant.conf:
Code:
{
network
ssid="hellothere"
psk="PASSKEYPASSKEY"
priority="5"
}


when i run 'wpa_supplicant -dd -iwlan0 -c /etc/wpa_suplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf' I get these errors:

Code:
 selected WPA AP 00:1f:9f:e9:43:af ssid='hellothere'

Stupid question: did you change the router in any way? Did it self-update or anything?

Nope, i installed the wireless card, it worked fine. When I tried to use it the other night it kept saying "Associate with AP timed out" and the rest you can see from the output above. It just doesn't make any sense, the only thing that comes to my mind is that the firmware I'm using doesn't properly support my card...

I am going to play around with it a bit more this weekend, so I will post more details

Unplug the power on your router for 30 sec and retry.

It will do a clean reset, but no need to reconfigure your router.

no, everything was left the same, just a reinstall of the firmware and wireless tools/wpa_supplicant

sorry, I was wondering if there was a kernel update at the time of the problem starting?

When you update your kernel, always remember to reemerge your firmware.
