I guess its wifi network  and both are stations in your two computers

Then you can connect through IBSS  Ad hoc    mode


If its IBSS then try this
Please try to use the following wpa_supplicant configuaration to check if association is o.k.

Here is several sample of configuration file for wpa_supplicant.conf.

1. Set the WPA supplicant in IBSS mode and  WPA supplicant scan the peer IBSS station.
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
update_config=1

network={
        ssid="ibss"
        proto=WPA
        key_mgmt=NONE
        mode=1
}

2. Set the WPA supplicant in IBSS mode and wireless driver scan the peer IBSS station.
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
update_config=1
ap_scan=2

network={
        ssid="ibss"
        proto=WPA
        key_mgmt=NONE
        mode=1
}

3.  Set the WPA supplicant in IBSS mode, WPA supplicant scan the peer IBSS station and set the IBSS channehl to 1.
ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
update_config=1

network={
        ssid="ibss"
        proto=WPA
        key_mgmt=NONE
        mode=1
        frequency=2412
}

hum i m not sure you understand what I try to do.

I only have 2 computers and I want link them with a wireless WPA network. I need to create the network on my first computer, the second computer is supposed to detect the network. But I don't know how to create a new network, when I use a classic wpa_supplicant conf, the daemon try to connect to the network but the network does'nt exists as I try to create it.

Can we create a new network with wpa_supplicant ? As a router does.

First check whether network is available or not by this command

Iwlist wlan0 scan



If wlan0 is ur wireless interface



If it’s available  then send me scan result and  wpa_supplicant configuration to me

Hello,

I try to create a new network with wpa_supplicant (wp2 personnal). My first computer is supposed to create the wireless network and my second computer have to detect this network.
Currently I have a configuration for the first computer but the network is not created, wpa_supplicant try to connect to the network but it can't as the network doesn't exists :/

A special option is necessary to do this ?
