Re: Cannot connect to WPA PSK network (ThinkPad X220 with Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N + WiMAX 6250 adapter)



I've finally figured out that I need to add more options to connect to
my WPA network.
The following did the trick.


allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
        wpa-driver wext
        wpa-ssid <ssid>
        wpa-ap-scan 2
        wpa-proto WPA
        wpa-group TKIP
        wpa-pairwise TKIP
        wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
        wpa-psk <passphrase>


Reference:
- /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/README.modes.gz
- /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples/wpa_supplicant.conf.gz
