I finally got a commercial AP (D-Link DWL-1000AP for about $200) and
I've got the stock prism2_cs driver working on my notebook PC with
Linksys WPC11 card installed. I got it to work without WEP enabled after
applying the 2.2.18 patches on this group (my system: RedHat 7, 2.2.18
kernel, 3.1.22 pcmcia_cs). That's the good news -- it does work.
Bad news is that WEP isn't working yet with the D-Link AP. Since I'm not
inclined to have neighbors on my network, I've got to get encryption
working that the D-Link AP can understand ...
Looking at the group, I've noticed some messages indicating problems /
potential fixes for WEP regarding the driver modules and commercial APs.
I'm hoping to apply some of it. Actually, I've applied most of what I've
read from back in October already, with the exception of a modification
I don't understand. That is, I've added modifications to increase the
WEP key lengths to 13 to allow the 128 bit encryption that the AP wants
and accepts from the Win 2K driver on the dark side of my notebook
computer. I've already added the correct key into the wlan-ng.opts file.
There is also a reference to RID(FC2A), a value that has to be equal to
2. Does anyone know where I can make this change in the source? Will
this really do it?
Hopefully I can get this to work well with the WEP enabled ...
