Wireless card will not connect today
I have a netgear wg311 cordless card on my Debian equipment. I have it attached making use of wpa_supplicant.
When I type this.
wpa_supplicant -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf -iwlan0 -Dwext
I get this
TRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-RESULTS Trying to associate with 68:7f:74:47:50:96 (SSID='BigGiraffe' freq=2462 MHz) Associated with 68:7f:74:47:50:96 WPA: Key negotiation completed with 68:7f:74:47:50:96 [PTK=CCMP GTK=TKIP] CTRL-EVENT-CONNECTED - Connection to 68:7f:74:47:50:96 completed (auth) [id=0 id_str=] –
yet the link does not benefit 5 - 10 mins. Any person recognize what could be creating this?
iface wlan0 inet dhcp wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf wpa-driver wext wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK wpa-proto WPA wpa-ssid BigGiraffe iface default inet dhcp auto wlan0
mistake message on start-up
wpa_supplicant: wpa-roam can only be used with the "manual" inet METHOD, run parts /etc/network/if-pre-up.d/wpa_supplicant exited with return code 1.
and also it attempts to DHCP DISCOVER 255.255.255.255 at 6 various ports.
As last quote claims, you have "dhcp", when you need to have "hand-operated" for wlan0.
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
iface wlan0 inet guidebook
An additional selection is to make use of supervisor for network links, as an example Gnome is Network Manager or WICD.
