I can't use WPA and WPA2 with the kernel 2.6.23-git9. I use Debian Etch (with latest updates) and the network is managed by the GNOME NetworkManager.

I included all mac80211 modules and use the rt2x00 module included in the kernel. I've got an rt2500 chip in a BELKIN pcmcia card.

WEP and no encryption is working.

Any suggestions?


EDIT Added WPA2 as not useable!

I don't know what rt2x00 version is shipped with Ubuntu..
Could you post the result of 'modinfo rt2x00lib' ?

Why Ubuntu???
I use Debian Etch and the vanilla kernel 2.6.23-git9.

Sorry, I am skimming the topics a bit too much and overlook things like that. ;)

2.0.10 should have been a good version. Do you have any debug output in your logs?

I rerun it tomorrow afternoon (GMT +1) and grab the logs. Because I use the 2.6.22 kernel with rt2x00-snapshot from july at the moment, to have a working and secure wlan.

Hmm, ok, I could not sleep without a last beep ;)

WPA2 is working if the router is set to B-Only mode. I think it's the same problem as here http//rt2x00.serialmonkey.com/phpBB2/v ... 0c572cc74c

But I'll post the logs later (afternoon)

I just downloaded the rt2x00-cvs snapshot (rt2500 version 2.0.11) and dmesg show me
(MAC was changed to 0012xxxxxxxx by me)
[code1u1psy6j]
wlan0: AP denied association (code=19)
wlan0: associate with AP 00:12:xx:xx:xx:xx
wlan0: invalid aid value 0; bits 15:14 not set
wlan0: RX AssocResp from 00:12:xx:xx:xx:xx (capab=0x431 status=19 aid=0)
wlan0: AP denied association (code=19)
wlan0: associate with AP 00:12:xx:xx:xx:xx
wlan0: invalid aid value 0; bits 15:14 not set
wlan0: RX AssocResp from 00:12:xx:xx:xx:xx (capab=0x431 status=19 aid=0)
wlan0: AP denied association (code=19)
wlan0: association with AP 00:12:xx:xx:xx:xx timed out
[/code1u1psy6j]

with version 2.0.10 the output is the same except that the code value is 18 and not code=19.

if i manually change to 11b-mode, WPA2 is working but only with a rate of 1mbit

I have updated rt2x00.git from wireless.git, this means I have pulled in some mode-related bugfixes.
