Re: Intel Pro 2200BG wireless + WPA-SPK issue?



Hi,
Thanks a lot Roger for your information. But I have some doubts.
As I already mentioned, my Fedora is able to detect my wireless card and
work fine without WPA-PSK using the driver for Intel pro 2200BG downloaded
from the sourceforge.net. Why do then i need the NDISWrapper again for
windows driver(linux driver is ok!!!). Is ONLY WPA_supplicant will not do
good in this case? Please light on my thoughts.

Thanks
Madhan
