Hi all,

I own a WLAN card with rt2500 chip. Currently I am running a Gentoo system using kernel 2.6.23 with an emerged module. The ebuilds version is 1.1.0_pre2007071515. Everything works fine with that.
Now I compiled 2.6.24 kernel and included the rt2500pci module.
IT seems to work but I cannot configre my card using iwpriv which seems not to be supported with that version.

Is this a known problem with this version of the module?
Is there any other way to configure my card to use WPA and the lot?

So the way to go now is unsing wpa_supplicant?
Well then I will try that.

Thanks for the link.
