WIFI & WPA

WIFI & WPA

WIFI & WPA

(OP)
Hi,
Where I work we use WIFI connexion, but I can't configure my DELL LATITUDE D620 (Debian testing)

Authentication (network)  WPA2
Encryption      TKIP
PEAP

Can some one help me how to configure my WIFI interface ?

NB: I have WIFI ADSL router at home WEP encryption i can configure my wifi interface with no problem.

Regards.

RE: WIFI & WPA

So this same machine works at home on WEP?  

Are you sure you have the correct WPA key?  

You will need to create two profiles if you want to use the same computer on both systems, or configure manually from the command line.  Wireless-tools should allow you to do the necessary configuration.  

What wireless card do you have and what Linux driver are you using?  

RE: WIFI & WPA

Yes it works well with WEP,
I know how to configure WEP,

But I don't know how to configure WIFI with WPA2

Thx

RE: WIFI & WPA

It requires a key or passphrase, similar to WEP, but older wireless NICs and routers don't support it.

Check man wpa-supplicant for the linux box.
