  Hi all,

  i use wpa_supplicant 0.4.5 with 

  Mandrake 10.1
  PCI card Avaya orinoco gold (chipset atheros)
  openssl 0.9.7d

  so i download madwifi driver and wpa_supplicant, with EAP-TLS.
  l run
  wpa_supplcant -w -c /etc/wpa.conf -D madwifi -i ath0 -B

  then with

  dhclient ath0

  it gets the @IP.

  But the pb is, when i capture the frames with tcpdump, nothing is encrypted after the initail EAP authentification! all my ftp is visible, etc.

  I had the same pb with WEP key too, even when i set WEP key with the card, the connection is not crypted.

  Thanks in advance for your help.
