wpa_supplicant cannot connect properly
« on: October 21, 2019, 03:43:42 AM »
TinyCore 10.1 kernel 4.19.10-tinycore64
usb dongle D-Link DWA 123 rev D (usb 2001:3310) using the 8188eu.tcz extension together to wifi.tcz
the usb dongle powers on and is able to connect to unsecured/open APs, but when attempting to connect to a WPA/WPA2 just fails to connect, maybe could you guys let me some ideas?
thanks

Hi julcar
I don't know if this will help, but the  wpa_supplicant.tcz.info  file used to contain some instructions:
Code: [Select]
Cmd line usage:
$ sudo su
$ wpa_passphrase YourSSID YourPassword > /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
$ wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -B
$ udhcpc -b -i wlan0 -h box -p /var/run/udhcpc.wlan0.pid

Information:
Being connected to ethernet _and_ wireless with two DHCP client processes can
lead to problems like slow connections. As a solution setup a static IP address
on one of the devices.

IMPORTANT:
You will most probably need firmware*.tcz extensions to use your wireless device!
Since there are lot of them like firmware-atheros, firmware, firmware-iwlwifi,
please check which vendor firmware belongs to your device.

ok, following these commands I was able to connect to internet, in fact I am writing these lines from firefox, then the problem seems to be in the wifi.tcz extension, because it were impossible to use it to setup the connection

Hello,

It will likely be to do with "keys"  and it's extremely complicated.

The subsystem or router has to (get the ident with itself)  WPA

Wireless. 

Actually , wi fi  is very complex.   For example, service carriers, can just adjust
And change attributes of networks (per desire)  with over-the-air   commands.

Probably if you are able to communicate on the WWW  (World Wide Web) TCP-IP network  (as your post indicates)
For , your services, if that is acceptable . Persevere  with that.

THx

Vin
