I'm having problem trying to setup my wireless connection to connect to
the AP. Using intel 3945 wireless card with iwlwifi. iwlwifi is
pre-package with Fedora 7 64 bit. I have no problem connecting with WEP.
But not WPA.
Here is my wpa_supplicant.conf setup.
Edit /etc/sysconfig/wpa_supplicant and make sure these are the values set in
Go to /etc/rc.d/rc3.d/ and repeat the above step
Upon boot up I get "ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported" error.
WEXT auth param 4 value 0x0
WEXT auth param 5 value 0x1
I did try to get a dump of wpa_supplicant using
wpa_supplicant -Bw -Dwext -iwlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
I get minimal information returned.
>From dmesg, I found this.
dmesg |grep wpa_supplicant

Did I miss out something? I did not install additional rpm after
installing Fedora 7. All I did was enable the wpa_supplicant service.
