I have just acquired a Linksys "Instant Wireless Network PC Card"
802.11b wireless NIC.  When plugged into a 6.2 i386 laptop, dmesg

port 0x100-0x13f irq 11 function 0 config 1 on pccard1
wi0: using RF:PRISM3(PCMCIA)
wi0: Intersil Firmware: Primary (1.1.0), Station (1.4.2)
wi0: Ethernet address: 00:06:25:18:6e:1d

When I attempted to connect to my WPA-PSK WAP, wpa_supplicant(8)
just hangs.  When I turned off encryption on the WAP, and enter:

# dhclient wi0

Then the NIC connects just fine.  So the question is, is the NIC or
the wi(4) driver incapable of WPA encryption?

Try adding;


to /etc/rc.conf.

That way it will run dhclient automatically whenever you plug the card

I don't have a problem running dhclient, I have a problem with WPA. Initially, my rc.conf said:

ifconfig_wi0="WPA DHCP"

and I had the correct entry in my /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf.  I could
not connect to my WAP until I turned off WPA, as I stated in my OP.


Sorry, I misunderstood. Please excuse the noise...
