I'm not getting my Rt61 up and running
But I've some Wifi Doubts that .... i might misunderstand just might add to the problem


-Wifi - implementation standards ?
WPA2PSK has no interference with wep encryption (key function/Encryptionkey)
as WPA2PSK has it own encryption key the web KEYs 1/2/3/4 existance or not
make no difference on te settings ((ap) and Client) to make a connection
WEP and WPA settings are mutualy exclusive

Ethernet Address Selection
Ehernet selection, is placed on top of all encryption WEP /WPA
if activated that is just an extra condition to satisfy

Ether address selection performa an and with WPA and WEB functions

-Wifi Serial monkey drivers
-Ralink drivers ar from RALINK not supported here but by definition OLDER and used as basis for legacy drivers and RT2xDrivers
-Legacy drivers are the RAlinkDrivers DAILY improved by serial Monkey
developers to improve functionality. Due to daily .... there is no warranty(if in most minimal definition that they work), if this is through, where can ze find the latest most stable versions that work ???
-Beta versions are the latest toys to play with ... even less stablity then above.(not negatively intended)

-Rt2X00 the future wifi drivers, good probability it does not work YET.

Thanks for possibly correcting my impressions on wifi and the project

Sorry, I did not understand much of the above. WEP and WPA are different, and cannot, and are not, ran both at the same time on the same card. WPAPSK uses a single key.

-Wifi Serial monkey drivers

Yes.

-Legacy drivers are the RAlinkDrivers DAILY improved by serial Monkey

The BETA drivers are all old versions and should not be used, I think we should simply remove them from the download section.
The drivers are not necessarily improved daily, it is only the tarball that is generated daily (hourly actually), they are what we advise people to use as they contain the latest fixes.

-Rt2X00 the future wifi drivers, good probability it does not work YET.[/quote3f4tcg08]
Yes, but it is already working relatively well in several setups.

thanks for replying


my point with WEP-WPA-and mac address
is only following (iwconfig/ipriv/iwlist) related to wep - mac can interfere with WPA settings
although of coarse one can specify the key /encryption in a wpa configuration
but due to wep-wpa not runing together would interfere in each other setup

I'm starting to doubth my WPA2 configuration is influences by sWEP left overs set encryption on or off and possibly other
combination.

I was planning to run a debug version to learn more about my problem
