Hi there!

Sorry for this reall long post, this comes because I really have
investigated many time for finding a solution to my problem:

I have read many and I used google a lot, but I cannot figure out
whats happening here.

The configuration is public, see website
http://www.uni-salzburg.at/portal/page?_pageid=565,255839&_dad=portal&_schema=PORTAL. (Essid:
Plus, psk: ITServices06), the essid is not broadcasted.  My Card is a
DWL-G650+ (D-Link AirPlus G+).

But I cannot connect.

My wpa_supplicant.conf:
-----------
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=0

ap_scan=1
network={
        ssid="Plus"
#       psk="ITServices06"

psk=c62903a45816de75871eb5a674f6ac3d0d0fb8e0e1ee4efb99e8ecf5d904ce4b
        proto=WPA
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        priority=5
}

The essid on the AP will be visibile, when I do "iwconfig mode auto
essid Plus".  I have to do this because otherwise wpa_supplicant
cannot find the AP.

This is reported but the solutions which work there do not work here.

I use ndiswrapper, and I have the same with wpa_supplicants -Dwext or
-Dndiswrapper, the website told me to use -Dwext:
notebook ~ # ndiswrapper -v
utils version: 1.8
driver version:        1.14
vermagic:       2.6.16-gentoo-r3 SMP preempt K7 gcc-3.4
notebook ~ # ndiswrapper -l
Installed drivers:
gplus           driver installed, hardware present

On pluggin in the card i get trough dmesg:

pccard: CardBus card inserted into slot 0
ndiswrapper: driver gplus (D-Link,04/09/2004,6.0.0.18) loaded
PCI: Enabling device 0000:02:00.0 (0000 -> 0002)

wlan0: encryption modes supported: WEP; TKIP with WPA
APIC error on CPU0: 40(40)
APIC error on CPU0: 40(40)

It seems that the APIC error is only there when the card is plugged
in. This error repeats and repeats all the time, I could have pasted
this pagewise.   I can only stop this message by removing the card
from the pcmcia slot.  When I plug it in, the message goes on.

I figured out to do a noapic flag to the kernel, but if I do so, the
card cannot be found anymore, the same is for acpi=noirq (demsg):

cs: pcmcia_socket0: cardbus cards are not supported.


So now this seems to be an interupt issue?

The yenta seems to be my pcmcia driver, lshw tells me:

        *-pcmcia

Ok, both have the same irq: 16.  But is this wrong?  I have only one
pcmcia place for one card.  Can the bus have the same irq or not?

What else can I try?

Thanks for your help.

Martin

PS. I posted this also to ndiswrapper, because I do not really know
where it belongs too.
