Connecting to WPA2 TLS with eee 1000h

Postby king1326 » Sun Apr 18, 2010 7:55

Hello,

I've been having issues trying to connect to my schools network with Sabayon 5 Gnome.
Attempts using NetworkManager and the wpa_supplicant have been unsuccesful. With NM, the dialog box Authentication "required" with network settings keeps popping up
with wpa_supplicant the connection times out


Network:
------------------------------------------------------
The network I am trying to connect to is WPA2 with TLS


My wpa_supplicant.conf configured as shown on the school website is as follows

network={
ssid="WPI-Wireless"
key_mgmt=WPA-EAP
proto=WPA2
pairwise=CCMP
group=CCMP TKIP
eap=TLS
identity="******"
ca_cert="/home/awb/linux_cert/netops-ca.pem.cer"
client_cert="/home/awb/linux_cert/Wireless-User.pem"
private_key="/home/awb/linux_cert/Wireless_User.pem"
private_key_passwd="********"
}

Computer:
Asus eee 1000h
Wireless card = RT2860


Other Info
------------------------------

I have installed the RT2860 firmware off sulfur. I can now see wireless networks but not connect to them.

Code: Select all
GLaDOS awb # iwconfig

lo        no wireless extensions.

eth0      no wireless extensions.

wlan0     IEEE 802.11bgn  Mode:Managed  Frequency:2.412 GHz

          Retry  long limit:7   RTS thr:off   Fragment thr:off
          Encryption key:off
          Power Management:off


Code: Select all

I am a fairly new linux user who has been attempting to use Sabayon for several months on and off with out much luck. Any help or advise would be appreciated.


Thanks!

sigh.

Does anyone know if it is possible to connect to a WPA2 EAP TLS network with Sabayon at the moment?

I've been at it for several weeks now with no luck. When I tried earlier in the year with the KDE version I got the same results, but recently was told that many people here have a lot of wireless issues with KDE in all distros. I'm getting the same thing with gnome.

I like Sabayon a lot, but a netbook without wireless is kind of worthless to me.

I am new to Linux and am unfamiliar with how interrelated various distros are but I know I can access the network with Opensuse, Ubuntu, and Fedora. I know a few other people with Gentoo working which makes me think that it is my specific setup or hardware but I've tried pretty much everything I could find.

This points towards your "ioctl[SIOCGIWSCAN]: Resource temporarily unavailable" error being a driver issue.

This may help with your issue compiling the driver.

Thanks for your response!

I followed the second set of instructions and the driver compiled.

I'll try the supplicant instructions the next chance I get.

Thanks again!
