I'm using Ubuntu 11.10 and I've copied the
wpa_supplicant configs from another computer running Ubuntu 11.10, which is connected to my home network.
The non-connecting device has an Intel wireless card which uses the
ipw2100 driver and the wireless interface is called
eth1. Issuing the
iwlist scanning command shows that the card can see my network SSID (along with several others).
However, when I run the command:
wpa_supplicant -Dwext -ieth1 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
I get the error message:
wpa_supplicant ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: Invalid argument
Any guidance on explaining this error and help in getting
wpa_supplicant to work giving me connectivity to my home network would be greatly appreciated.
