PostPosted: Thu 08 Jun 2006, 16:57    Post subject: Follow Up on Orinoco Card  

I should have mentioned that I have the 8410 version of the Classic Gold card. I don't know if I am loading the proper modules for the card or if I should be using madwifi with the wpa_supplicant.

I am doing the following;
# Loading the chipset
modprobe oronico_cs
#Then bringing up the connection
ifconfig eth0 up
#Now starting the wpa_supplicant
wpa_supplicant -i eth0 -D madwifi -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd
#I have triple checked the .conf file to ensure it is correct

Let's go back to square one.

Yes, I think orinoco_cs is correct. The Orinoco Classic Gold 8410 model contains a Hermes chipset, which is very similar to the older Orinoco chipset, and is supported by the same driver ... however, this driver is not supported by wpa_supplicant, so you must use ndiswrapper instead.

Walk before you run. Get ndiswrapper working with your card before attempting to add wpa_supplicant to the mix.
And I suggest you turn off encryption at your access point while testing. Do this -

ndiswrapper -i /path/to/mywindowsdriver.inf
## check whether the driver installed successfully with "ndiswrapper -l"
## this should report "driver present, hardware present"
modprobe ndiswrapper
ifconfig wlan0 up
iwconfig wlan0 essid MY_ESSID key none mode managed
dhcpcd -t 30 -h puppypc -d wlan0

If this works, reboot, enable WPA encryption at the router, and you can try wpa_supplicant.
Modify the configuration file, /root/.etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, to include your SSID and Personal Security Key (PSK).

Forget about madwifi, I just used it as an example in the README. Your commands are -

modprobe ndiswrapper
ifconfig wlan0 up
wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -D ndiswrapper -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd
## wpa_supplicant may take about 30 seconds to negotiate the connection
## connection is successful when you see "EAPOL: startWhen --> 0"
## now we can get an IP address. Open a second xterminal,
dhcpcd -t 30 -h puppypc -d wlan0
