I have been using the latest drivers from CVS (actually, the latest for
the last two dayos, I've tried this twice), to get my D-Link G650 to
work with its matching DWL-2000AP+ Access Point (which, btw, I DO NOT
It used to work using MadWiFi, though I couldn't tell you what version I
Using kernel 2.4.26, and todays (27 May 2004) CVS drivers, I get
'association failed (reason 1)' messages in the console (this is with
WEP turned off, with WEP on, I get 'authentication failed, reason 12', I
I looked in the source, and it seems that reason 1 means Unspecified
It works under Windows, so its not a hardware issue. Mind you, this
access point doesn't like my Orinoco Gold 802.11b card (I have rotten
luck with b and g compatability, and I have multiple cards and APs).
I can scan the network using 'iwlist ath0 scanning', though when I had
64-bit WEP turned on, the key part of scanning output would seem to
indicate that it was expecting 128-bit keys. (10 *s, IIRC)
The key was correct (either the correct 64-bit key, or off, but matching
the AP), and so was the SSID. Using 'watch iwconfig ath0' showed that it
would associate for a brief period (according to the Access Point field
in iwconfig output), then move onto a different channel (I should note
that there was only one AP in the area).
Both the NIC and the AP have the latest firmware.
Here are the machine details
IBM ThinkPad A21m
NIC: D-Link DWL-G650 802.11g
AP is in mixed-mode.
