Wireless and WPA problem [solved]

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

 

From a lot of time I installed my Sitecom WL-170 wireless PCMCIA card on Mandriva 2007 and with ndiswrapper I surfed the web without problems. A couple days ago I discovered some new drivers for my card and I installed them. I took them from here. My card uses Rt61 driver.

 

However, now I can't acces to my wireless home network. I found 2 active interface, ra0 and wlan0. I can see my card works, I can see my home network BUT there's always WEP encryption while I use WPA. I think the problem is in WPA settings but I could have no idea. At least I can unistall Rt61 driver and use ndiswprapper but I don't know how to do it.

 

Can you tell me something?

 

Thanks in advance.

If you unpacked and performed a "make install" you can also perform a "make uninstall" if you still have the same directory from which you ran make.

The problem is likely the wpasupplicant. Perhaps you need to recompile it to add support for your card. This is easy to do, just download the source and read the documentation.

Thanks all for your help but I think this is the good chance to re-install my Mandriva 2007 that is in a bad shape. Thanks again to all, MODs can close/delete this topic.
