I am running a Dell 9300 laptop with the ipw2200 driver running kubuntu
5.04 using WPA-PSK for encryption. Kubuntu 5.04 (hoary hedgehog) ran
the wireless card out of the box - but not with WPA. I only got it
working finally today after several days of trying. I don't know
exactly which step worked but it was definitely to with setting up the
wpa_supplicant software and associated scripts and config files. I got
it working from information and scripts from the below links. Nothing I
found worked exactly without some modification, but they gave me enough
of a start.
After I loaded wpa_supplicant software, I didn't need to load any other
crypto software from memory, as I think that some is supplied with
try this link for ubuntu which may help:
I also found these links which may be of use:
I hope this helps. I can give you some more details if this doesn't get
you very far.
