I have just installed vl5.9.1 soho final

I am trying to get wifi to work.
Wpa_supplicant is giving an odd error when it starts up.
From the command line I run

wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

and I get this error

ioctl[SIOCSIWAUTH]: Operation not supported

I put it in debug mode with the –d switch but still only got this one line error.
My set up

lspci shows my wifi card

02:00.0 network controller pro/wireless 3945abg network connection

Modprobe iwl3945 works no errors
Got the latest firmware in /lib/firmware   (thank you Gamfa!)

Ifconfig sees the card (shows up as wlan0)

My wpa_supplicant.conf file looks like this:


ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
ctrl_interface_group=wheel
network={
ssid="MYSSID"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
scan_ssid=1
psk="mysupersecretkey"
}

Any thoughts? The odd thing is even with the error, it works and I get on the network.

I appears this is a bug in the code. It does not seem to effect the code, just an error message that seems to be tossed out for no reason.

at least thats the way it reads.
