WPA-SPK Cisco Aironet 350
I have a Cisco Aironet 350 PCI WLAN card. I'm running Debian Sarge
(2.6.8-2). It works without any security, but I'd like to use it with
WPA (enabled on the AP, a DLink DWL2000+). Has anyone got this card
working with WPA-PSK.
It seems it supports it:
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) is a standards-based, interoperable
security enhancement that greatly increases the level of data
protection and access control for existing and future wireless LAN
systems. It is derived from and will be compatible with the upcoming
IEEE 802.11i standard. WPA leverages Temporal Key Integrity Protocol
(TKIP) and Michael message integrity check (MIC) for data protection
and 802.1X for authenticated key management.
WPA supports two mutually exclusive key management types: WPA and
WPA-Pre-shared key (WPA-PSK). Using WPA key management, clients and
the authentication server authenticate to each other using an EAP
authentication method, and the client and server generate a pairwise
master key (PMK). Using WPA, the server generates the PMK dynamically
and passes it to the access point. Using WPA-PSK, however, you
configure a pre-shared key on both the client and the access point,
and that pre-shared key is used as the PMK.
Windows XP Service Pack 1 and Microsoft support patch 815485 must be
installed in order to use WPA. They can be downloaded from the
•Service Pack 1:
•815485 support patch:
Only 350 series and CB20A cards that are running EAP authentication
can be used with WPA. WPA must also be enabled on the access point.
Any pointers appreciated.
