The driver which was supplied with card doesn't support anything
except WEP (under M$ Windows).

Here is my config:


ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant

eapol_version=1

ap_scan=1

fast_reauth=1

opensc_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_opensc.so
pkcs11_engine_path=/usr/lib/opensc/engine_pkcs11.so
pkcs11_module_path=/usr/lib/pkcs11/opensc-pkcs11.so

network={
	ssid="mySSID"
	scan_ssid=1
	proto=WPA
	key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
	pairwise=CCMP TKIP
	group=CCMP TKIP
	eap=TLS
	identity="user at example.com"
	ca_cert="myCA-cacert.pem"
	client_cert="ruzsinszkya at email.hu-cert.pem"
	private_key="ruzsinszkya at email.hu-key.pem"
	private_key_passwd="myprivkey-pswd"
	priority=1
}

blob-base64-exampleblob={

}

That's all! Others are commented out.

I think my Senao NL-2511CD Plus(E100) card is Prism2.5. Is that right?

TIA,
