Kwlan in Etch
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Ok. First of all, I'm using ndiswrapper because of the broadcom card
in this laptop. I can configure the interface by hand
in /etc/network/interfaces, but I do not wish to do this because of
wanting to use this on the road.
I have KWlan and Wireless Assistant installed, but not running them at
the same time.
When KWlan launches, it reports:
"KWlan was unable to create kwlan dialup peer directory"
"WPA Supplicant is not started, encryption cannot be configured"
Also, the "scan" shows nothing. When I try to activate the
configuration of just essid anyway, I get
"KWlan was unable to Configure wlan interface using iwconfig"
So I thought this was a permissions problem, I ran KWlan as root and
it still failed.
I also tried Wireless Assistant. Everything seems to work, except the
interface doesn't come up. The only indication of anything that I can
find is in dmesg. Each time I try to bring up the interface with
Wireless Assistant, it says:
"ndiswrapper (iw_set_wep:927): key 1 is not set"
So I'm rather stuck. Both KWlan and Wireless Assistant seem to be
exactly the right tools for the job, especially Wireless Assistant.
Any suggestions, including a pointer to the correct venue?
And google searches only report using these tools and they work.
