  I want to test wpa_supplicant and hostapd. I've just
a Dlink DWL-G520 wireless card. I installed
successfully madwifi and hostapd and the wireless card
seems to work fine in master mode. I created the
bridge br0 between eth0 and ath0.

  For the test, I want to use the EAP integrated
server and 802.1X with any EAP method. I choosed

  On the hostapd side, I added the following entry in
"md5"        MD5      "md5"

  On the wpa_supplicant side, the conf file is

  And the communication doesnt seem to work. The log
on hostap is: "Network is down" and it stucks here.
wpa_supplicant can detect the 8021X_test network but
it skips because of "no WPA/RSN IE"

  Could you please help me out to have it work please?
In one of the previous question, someone already asked
about the configuration of EAP integrated server but I
couldn't find a clear answer.

  If it can not work with MD5, then which method
should I use please? 

  Thanks a lot for any help,
  Best regards,
