RE: CentOS and wireless, oh my



Well, in trying to get that wifi card of mine to work I had to screw
around for ages with iwconfig, iwlist and iwpriv. Have a look at their
man pages. Might just be a WPA support problem, if it can see the
wireless networks and all.

What chipset does you wireless card have?
<snip>
Atheros. The card's about 3.5 yrs old, and I was using the madwifi
drivers. I see the ath5k driver loaded, but I get complaints about
needing
ath5k_pci, and am trying to find what rpm provides that.

Oh, I tried installing wpa_supplicant, rpm claimed it was installed...
but
now it runs in daemon mode. No clue what had happened before.

However, I still can't connect, though iw<whatsit> wlan0 scan finds the
wireless with no trouble.

Back to, do I use wext, or go for the ath5k driver?
