Author Topic: Wireless Networking with RT61 chipset card  (Read 5809 times)

I have followed all info given at URL and also the ubuntu guide and Slackware9 guide but I cannot get WPA working.

Referred to the iwpriv info file with the [Modules] directory of the serial monkey driver and tried the wireless tools [iwconfig & iwpriv] to get WPA working but still no joy.

If I configure my router to an open network (isolating any connection to the router matching my PCMCIA cards MAC only) then this works a charm with no bugs simply using the [wifi-radar].

Has anybody ever got WPA working using RT61 chipset? If so, how? Undecided

I got the wireless network up and running (using WEP) rather quickly. I guess the install scripts from serialmonkey has improved over the lase year.  Smiley
One small step remaining though - I get the card starting on boot, but I have to manually connect to a network. How can I make this automatic as well?

Nothing like trying it out to see how it goes....If it is not normally detected with a VL Standard or SOHO install then there are lots of resources and we are here to help you. I also found this method for that chipset:

Personal experience using that guide, on a friend's Debian Etch box: I found that modprobe did not work. Had to use insmod and full path to the module for it to load.
