WEP problem - HostAP 0.0.4, Netgear MA401, Linksys WPC11
Tue Sep 23 16:31:04 PDT 2003
I've yet to make any progress on this ;-(
I've successfully flashed all cards using the latest prism2_srec to the
NIC: id=0x8013 v1.0.0
PRI: id=0x15 v1.1.1
STA: id=0x1f v1.7.4
I can still successfully associate when running the laptops under Linux
with or without WEP, but when running Windows with WEP enabled all I see
from the AP is:
Sep 24 00:10:08 Oook wlan0: 00:06:25:2a:b1:d8 auth_cb - STA authenticated
Sep 24 00:10:08 Oook wlan0: 00:06:25:2a:b1:d8 assoc_cb - STA associated
Sep 24 00:10:09 Oook wlan0: 00:06:25:2a:b1:d8 auth_cb - STA authenticated
Sep 24 00:10:09 Oook wlan0: 00:06:25:2a:b1:d8 assoc_cb - STA associated
Sep 24 00:11:06 Oook handle_ap_item - addr3(BSSID)=2a:67:20:68:80:3d not own MAC
Sep 24 00:11:27 Oook wlan0: 00:06:25:2a:b1:d8 auth_cb - STA authenticated
Sep 24 00:11:27 Oook wlan0: 00:06:25:2a:b1:d8 assoc_cb - STA associated
(The 'not own MAC' line corresponds to me re-selecting the 'active
profile' in the linksys config utility)
I *should* be seeing a DHCP request next.
