different wpa_supplicant drivers
Tue May 23 10:51:56 PDT 2006
I am trying 802.1x and WPA on different linux distributions always
withthe same ipw2200 hardware
It works but...
On Red Hat enterprise 4 2.6.9-34.EL using ipw and ieee811 from atrpms
wpa_supplicant -d -w -ieth1 -Dipw -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
and everything works, that is I use wpa_supplicant with ipw driver
on Ubuntu 5.10 is the same I Always use ipw wpa_supplicant driver
on Fedora Core 5 with kernel 2.6.16-1 I have to use driver wext instead
how come ?
with ipw driver it will not work and wpa_supplicant needs to be started
with -Dwext option.
what I have to do to know in advance if the driver is generic wext or
specific ipw2200 ?
Why on Fedora is wext and not ipw ?
thanks a lot
