    Default dlink gw510 rt61 atheros

    hi need some help getting this to work

    i have been trying for the past 3 week to connect to my router. it is wpa-personal

    i have tried editing the wpa supplicant file to :

    network={
    essid="nameofnetwork"
    key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
    proto=WPA
    pairwise=TKIP
    group=TKIP
    psk="WPApassphrase"
    }

    i also tried to edit the rc.d/inet1.conf file

    i have read almost everything in here and on the internet but still no luck

    when i try the
    wpa_supplicant -D madwifi -i wlan0 -c wpa_supplicant.conf i get "driver not supported"

    i have more or less tried everything, could anyone please advise??

    thanks for a nice board and great tuts

    cheers..

    Are you certain that you have a card with an Atheros chipset, as only this chipset uses the madwifi drivers? Otherwise try replacing it with -D wext as it should work for most cards.

    EDIT: Just noticed the heading of the thread where you specifically mention the card you use. Silly me ... However I would still recommend that you try out my advice as the -D wext option should work for most cards as I already mentioned.
