Setting up WPA2 Wireless using WICD Instead of Custom Scripts
« on: January 08, 2010, 05:46:32 PM »
I am on an EEE 901 using the rt2860.tcz driver. Currently to get wireless up running I use the following script in bootlocal.sh:

/sbin/ifconfig ra0 up
/usr/local/sbin/iwconfig ra0 mode managed
/usr/local/sbin/iwpriv ra0 set AuthMode=WPA2PSK
/usr/local/sbin/iwpriv ra0 set EncrypType=TKIP
/usr/local/sbin/iwconfig ra0 essid Xoose
/usr/local/sbin/iwpriv ra0 set WPAPSK=[my pass phrase]
/usr/local/sbin/iwconfig ra0 essid [my essid]
sleep 2
/sbin/udhcpc -H TinyEEE -b -i ra0

I would like to use WICD to manage my wireless instead, but when I try, it goes through the whole process of authenticating, acquiring an IP, "Done Connecting", seeming like it is working - but then it ends with "Not connected" and no IP has been acquired.

What can I do?

Cheers,
Baz
