I changed (again...) to a Fritz! USBN N stick and use it with kernel 2.6.31
and compat-wireless-2.6. Works fine now.
But, wpa_supplicant does not start automatically... with my old stick it
started automatically, i now have to issue
wpa_supplicant -i wlan2 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.custom
(The stick is recognized as "wlan2", i dont know why, it's the only stick in
In which config file should I put the wpa_supplicant command so that I do not
need to call it manually?
One other thing, iwconfig shows now encryption:
wlan2 IEEE 802.11abg ESSID:"humpelstilzchen"
Mode:Managed Frequency:2.417 GHz Access Point: 00:1F:33:FC:52:1C
Bit Rate=54 Mb/s Tx-Power=20 dBm
Retry long limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off
Link Quality=70/70 Signal level=-33 dBm
Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0
Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0
strange, I enforce WPA2 and wpa_supplicant confirms this, just iwconfig is wrong
