WPA2 EAP-TLS

Post by king1326 » Fri Apr 23, 2010 16:57

Hello,

I've been having issues trying to connect to my school's 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.

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!
