rt61 legacy what verion works what does not ?
I seem to read that older versions of the Rt61 driver seemed to work after a lot of
I've copied all the commands trying to start a recent wpa3psk an get the whole thing started
but can not get a dhcp nor static connection,
up to now after trying for 2 weeks with 3 different versions
i get the driver running with a lot of crashes but never get it in a usefull state
I run on a debian etch nusing a pcmcia c54rc rev b
I guess all my commands are ok as far as i guess
except it does not link to the ap
where 2 meters from me an xp using exactly the same authorisation is successfully
working on ms drivers..
can anyone please help me to get this nightmare over and awy
What are the distribution, kernel and drivers you tried? Usually, the latest CVS tarball is the way to go.
If you could post a debug trace when the crash occurs, that would be helpful for the driver developers.
I'v build and set my today Rt61 driver in debug mode
no connection success except my light blinks regularly
from the debug file I think I learn it makes an authorised connection and then hangs
using following load script
# Set up wireless WPA2 on boot (rt61)
echo "Setting up WPA2PSK for wireless..."
sudo ifup $dev
sudo iwconfig $dev mode managed
sudo iwconfig $dev essid $myEssid
sudo iwconfig $dev key off
#sudo iwconfig $dev0 ap $AP
sudo iwpriv $dev set AuthMode=WPA2PSK
sudo iwpriv $dev set WPAPSK=$myKey
sudo iwpriv $dev set EncrypType=AES
#sudo dhclient $dev
sudo ifconfig $dev inet 10.0.0.214
sudo ifconfig $dev netmask 255.255.255.0
sudo ifconfig $dev broadcast 10.0.0.255
sudo ifconfig $dev gateway 10.0.0.100
sudo iwlist $dev scan
doing the scan I see 3 ap's but there is no way to contact them
in any mode using linux debian
using ms-drivers on windows xp is permanetly active on the sale ap
using clearly the same credentials
as i can trick a connection like ping using an other controller(cable) and then remove the card
it seems to receive information
the rt61 driver is not able to create a conection independently
Is there an olther version of RT61 that works ??
thanks in advance
Have you tried to run the commands of the script in a different order? The legacy drivers tend to be a bit picky about this.
Does "iwconfig" at least report an association?
