Hello List, hi Host AP Users
my english isnt the best, but i try to explain my problem.
So please apologise my grammar and spelling mistakes.
I use the latest version of the Host AP driver. I installed it and it
works fine in all modes an so on... but:
At home i use an 40 bit hex wep encrypted WLAN. I did the whole iwconfig
stuff with a little script.
iwconfig wlan0 essid mattern.freifunk.net mode managed
iwconfig wlan0 key XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
ifconfig wlan0 192.... netmask ... up
on xterm I only got the message:
Error for wireless request "Set Encode" (8B2A):
SET failed on device wlan0; Invalid argument
That´s the problem.
A few minutes ago I tried the same on a pure console (without X).
wifi0: Beacon inteerval settin to 100 failed
wifi0: DTIM period settin to 1 failed
wifi0: cnfSupportedRates setting to 15 failed
wifi0: cnfBasicRates settin to 3 failed
an then the same as above...
Anyone who can help me to solve the problem??
My System: Fedora Core2
cardctl ident: "hp", "wireless PC card WL110", "Version 0.1.01"
manfid: 0x0156, 0x0002
The used key is thought out.
iwconfig wlan0 gives:
... Access Point: 44:44:44:44:44:44
The key is the right one...
So how to manage this?
