i'm trying to enable a simple ad-hoc network with one rt73 usb key and a laptop running under windows. I'm actually using the last 220.127.116.11 kernel
I tried before with wpa_supplicant but it does not work. Secondly, the iwpriv command returns "no ioctrl".
config used for wpa_supplicant (does not work)
Is it possible to configure this ad-hoc network with the actual in-kernel rt73 driver?
should i use Iw command to do this?
I tried to see documentations attached on this and other website but no success.
Sorry for my english....
Thanks a lot.
I solved the problem by using rt73-k2wrlz modified module (3.0.3). It works fine now after adding a modified makefile to meet the last kernel.
iwpriv commands are now working.
commands used for ad-hoc network
Config STA to create/link as adhoc mode, which is WPANONE/TKIP(Authentication/Encryption)
1. iwpriv wlan0 set NetworkType=Adhoc
2. iwpriv wlan0 set AuthMode=WPANONE
3. iwpriv wlan0 set EncrypType=TKIP
5. iwpriv wlan0 set WPAPSK=12345678
you can use also the AES encryption type. It works fine between a win laptop and a gateway with the last kernel.
Now, i'm wondering why the in-kernel driver does not work. Is it only a regression???
