Hi all,

I am curious how I can automatically load the tkip
module for hostap driver.

when I do
iwconfig ath0 enc ...
the module hostap_crypt_wep is loaded automatically. But when
I use wpa_supplicant in a WPA environment with tkip and
the module hostap_crypt_tkip is not loaded, then wpa_supplicant
cannot connect. modprobing the module manually before start of
wpa_supplicant solves this.

But how is this done automatically?
is the access to the module functions different to the manner iwconfig
accesses hostap_crypt_wep?

any hint appreciated

Tilman
