I'm trying to connect to the corporate wireless network in Ubuntu
Breezy without full knowledge of the server parameters. (My local
network support guys are useless...)
In windows it works under the Funk Odyssey client software.
I was trying several parameters in wpa_supplicant.conf and looks like
I got connected (kind of).
At least I got successful messages in the debug output of supplicant (v0.4.5) :
EAPOL: Received EAPOL-Key frame
EAPOL: KEY_RX entering state KEY_RECEIVE
EAPOL: RX IEEE 802.1X ver=1 type=3 len=44 EAPOL-Key: type=1
EAPOL: EAPOL-Key key signature verified
EAPOL: using part of EAP keying material data encryption key -
hexdump(len=13): [REMOVED]EAPOL: Setting dynamic WEP key: unicast
keyidx 3 len 13
wpa_driver_ipw_set_key: alg=WEP key_idx=3 set_tx=128 seq_len=0 key_len=13
EAPOL: all required EAPOL-Key frames received
WPA: EAPOL processing complete
Cancelling authentication timeout
State: ASSOCIATED -> COMPLETED
CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to 00:40:96:52:0a:84 completed (reauth)
EAPOL: SUPP_PAE entering state AUTHENTICATED
and output from the wpa_cli looks like
# wpa_cli status
Selected interface 'eth1'
key_mgmt=IEEE 802.1X (no WPA)
Supplicant PAE state=AUTHENTICATED
EAP TLS cipher=AES256-SHA
EAP-PEAPv1 Phase2 method=GTC
my wpa_supplicant.conf looks like:
The problem is that there is no response from the DHCP server at this point.
Am I missing something and the interface is not really connected?
"State: ASSOCIATED -> COMPLETED "
"CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED-Connection to 00:40:96:52:0a:84 completed"
messages do not mean 'Really connected' ?
I also tried two different cards (ipw2200, and ath) with the same result...
The same time my collegue just mentioned successful connection on Mac OS
using standard mac software...
Any help or directions are very
