I'm using the BT3 live CD with a Dell Inspiron, Intel 3945ABG wireless. I'm not able to associate to my wireless router in Managed mode.
Below is the script I'm using. It starts with the commands from BT3, followed by the commands that are working on my laptop to start wireless networking from rc.local.
When this didn't work at first, I thought it was because I'm using WPA on my router. I copied my wpa_supplicant.conf file from my laptop to the live /etc directory but I still cannot make a connection. I'm guessing it is because there are additional steps I need to do for WPA but am not sure. What else do I need to do to get the BT3 live CD wireless working in Managed mode with WPA?
# from BT3
echo "[*] Removing IPW3945 drivers"
echo "[*] Reinserting IPW3945 drivers (normal mode)"
# working on laptop - manually start wireless on boot from rc.local
ifconfig wlan0 down
dhclient -r wlan0
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid "<my essid>"
iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed
/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf that works on laptop
### Associate with any open access point
### Scans/ESSID changes can be done with wpa_cli
iwlist wlan0 scan output:

Thanks for any help.
Thanks cleanwithit2008 but I'm not trying to get my password. Not there yet.
Much simpler. I already know my password. I'm trying to use it and just associate to my WPA router.
I tried using:
wpa_supplicant -B -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -i wlan0 -d wext
in addition to previous post, but still does not work.
Yes, I'd like to do it through some commands in a script.
This is already working when I boot from the hard disk.
Have you tried using the wireless assistant? I could never get a consistent connection using any of these methods, but the wireless assistant worked fine.
williamc - Thanks.
Wireless Assistant worked.
Would prefer to do it in a script, but it works.
You could try opening wireless assistant through the konsole as you then will be able to see, at least some, of the steps it takes to connect to your AP. I am not sure exactly how many of the exact commands the program uses that will be possible to obtain in this way, but it might be worth a try as you say that you are able to connect using it.

I could never get the wpa_supplicant.conf method to work. I went back and forth with -=Xploitz=- but never got it working. This was the only way for me. If you manage to find out the difference in the connection methods, please post it.
I have a Dynex usb wifi stick. My router is setup for WPA-TKIP encryption. When I use my wifi stick on my desktop running XP, I can connect to my router. When I try to use my wifi stick along with wireless assistant on BT3, my connection always fails. I notice wireless assistant prompts me for a WEP key (not WPA)to connect to my router.
I have a built in wireless card on my laptop that can connect to my router with no problems. So I'm guessing I have all the right drivers setup on my laptop. I don't know if I need to follow the instructions for the wpa-supplicant. I'm also worried if I follow the tutorial, I might mess up and then my built in wireless card won't be able to connect.
Has anyone seen this problem before ?
