[ndiswrapper] [acx] [netgear wg311v2] fails to associate

Bug #102385 reported by PearzooPeter on 2007-04-03
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
wpasupplicant (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: wpasupplicant


I'm not sure if I should be logging bugs for a beat release, but I hope it helps.

Running Feisty Beta on two machines, one with Intel pro wireless and one with Netgear wg311v2 (acx).

No problems on Intel Pro wireless connecting to the WPA Wireless LAN. (No ndiswrapper required)

Machine with Netgear wg311v2 using ndiswrapper 1.9 and wpa_supplicant 0.5.7 fails to associate with access point. No errors in dmesg, syslog logs retry after retry but fails to associate. Same card was working great on Edgy.

I've tried different versions of ndiswrapper and wpasupplicant with the same result, have not been able to try different version of Network-Manager. I have tried setting up wpa_supplicant manually without network manager, but with no luck. There I get endless loops of association errors. Sadly I did not jot them down, but if it helps I can re-create that.

please attach a debug log (use parameters -dd), and attach your wpa_supplicant configuration file to this bug.

I hope this helps, is there any more info that you require?

I confirm this bug on Feisty final. Same story (OK with Edgy, does not work with Feisty), does not associate with WPA.

Reinhard Tartler (siretart) wrote :

according to http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.drivers.hostap/15839, it should help if you guys restrict usage of TKIP (wpa1 only). could you please read the linked thread retry again?

08:51:16 < crimsun> siretart: I do.
08:51:21 < crimsun> Do you need something tested?
08:51:57 < siretart> crimsun: it's about bug #108013
08:52:23 < siretart> I can't really believe it, and I think I've found something relevant on the upstream mailing list
08:52:26 < crimsun> wpa_supplicant in 7.04 definitely works with ndiswrapper.
08:52:46 < crimsun> I've got an unfortunate bcm4311
08:53:07 < siretart> ok, then the upstream post ist most probably correct

I gave current ndiswrapper-utils-1.9 and wpasupplicant packages from gutsy a try but had no luck. Still the same issue, pairing needs endless tries till it succeeds.
