NM: cannot associate with AP when using WPA-PSK (wpa_supp can)
Last modified: 2008-10-20 10:46:24 EDT
Description of problem:
With NM I can not get a connection with my AP while using WPA-PSK. When I use
wpa_supplicant from the commandline I do get a connection.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
NM tries to get a connection but keeps coming back asking for the WPA-PSK
Get a working connection.
This is on a MacBook with atheros Wifi (AR5006EG 802.11 b/g Wireless PCI Express
Adapter (rev 01) ) and the madwifi driver from SVN (r2990) because the ath5k
driver does not support my card.

output from NetworkManager --no-daemon
Attached output from starting NetworkManager with --no-daemon. When it asked
for the key again I pressed cancel.
Ah, is it that ath5k doesn't support PCI _express_ cards yet? Because I just
updated to the latest kernel this weekend on a pci-connected ar5006 laptop and
it magically started working with my AP while earlier kernels from last week
didn't. Failing that I'll need to get madwifi and go build that and test.
Hmm, I am currently running kernel-126.96.36.199-49.fc8 which is the latest FAIK. But
yes, according to lspic I have a PCI-E ar5006.
I can no longer test this as I no longer have the hardware nor the mentioned
versions of the software.
Ok, testing working with WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK on F8 with 188.8.131.52-6.fc8, NM svn4022.4, and supplicant 0.5.10-6.fc8 on ipw2200 hardware.
