    Default wpa_supplicant failes after following tutorial by Xploitz

    Hi,

    i hope someone can help me with a crazy wpa_supplicant problem.
    Couldn't find any help after hours of searching the web.

    I try to connect to my network following the Tutorial "Wpa, TKIP". I have an Intel 4965 NIC.
    I get the following error: (The interface "wlan0" is the right one)

    root@slax:~# wpa_supplicant -w -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
    ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
    WEXT auth param 4 value 0x0 - ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
    WEXT auth param 5 value 0x1 - Trying to associate with SSID 'whiskey-lima-alpha-november'
    ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
    WEXT auth param 5 value 0x1 - CTRL-EVENT-TERMINATING - signal 2 received
    ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
    WEXT auth param 5 value 0x0 - ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported
    WEXT auth param 4 value 0x0 -

    Using Backtrack I get exactly the same.


    But NOW THE "FUNNY" THING:

    Using wlassistant on Backtrack I first can't connect... but after switching wireless off and again on it works!!
    Unfortunately that doesn't work using my USB-Slax. I compiled wlassistant und wpa_supplicant from the sources and followed the instructions for wpa_supplicant, also replaced the *.conf file as described in the tutorial and changed the ESSID and the key. I'm sure I did everything exactly the same as in the tutorial.

    WHAT IS DIFFERENT IN BACKTRACK?!
    (using wlassistant I even copied all the files, checked the permissions...)

    Could someone help me?!
