approve posting in moderator queue

I wonder if the moderator is listening here.  If I'm hoping [s]he'd be so 
kind as to go an approve my posting sitting in the moderation queue.

I'd just resend it now that I'm a subscriber (and gmane reader) but I 
don't have a copy of it here and would hate to try to recreate it.

Thanx much!

Is this better?

Switching from WPA to WPA2

I'm running hostapd and WPA with a long and random password.  Would it
be beneficial to switch to WPA2?  Is WPA2 encryption harder to break?
If so, what is the quickest way to switch?

Interesting.. It looks like the wpsTab->setEnabled(FALSE) grays out the
contents of the tab, but allows the tab to be selected while
wpaguiTab->setTabEnabled(idx, FALSE) grays out the tab selection text
and does not allow the tab to be selected. However, if the tab gets
selected somehow in the program, the contents of the tab is not grayed
out.. It looks like we actually should add both of these.

removeTab() could be even better from the UI clarity view point, but it
would require more work to bring back the tab if needed.

Depends on what you mean with "WPA" and "WPA2". If by WPA you mean that
TKIP is enabled, then yes, it would be must more secure to switch to
WPA2. If only CCMP is enabled and you are just talking about difference
between WPA and WPA2/RSN for 4-way handshake, then there is not really
much difference as far as security is concerned.

> If so, what is the quickest way to switch?

rsn_pairwise=CCMP
wpa=2

Yep, agreed.

Agreed again.

Thanks for committing a nicer patch.

I appear to be running TKIP so I changed the above settings, although
I have 'wpa_pairwise' on hostapd-0.5.10 instead of 'rsn_pairwise'.  I
also noticed I have 'wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK' set.  I can't connect to
the AP in its new configuration.  Here is wpa_supplicant.conf on the
client:

network={
        ssid="networkname"
        key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
        psk="longrandompassword"
        proto=WPA2
        pairwise=CCMP
        group=CCMP
}

Am I configuring the client incorrectly, or could it be the server?

Types of scanning supported by wpa_supplicant-0.5.11

Hi All,
 
  I saw following scan types in wireless_copy.h of wpa_supplicant. In actual implementation only few of the scan types are supported by wpa_supplicant. Let me know which of the following are supported by wpa_supplicant?
 
 
#define IW_SCAN_DEFAULT     0x0000  /* Default scan of the driver */
#define IW_SCAN_ALL_ESSID   0x0001  /* Scan all ESSIDs */
#define IW_SCAN_THIS_ESSID  0x0002  /* Scan only this ESSID */
#define IW_SCAN_ALL_FREQ    0x0004  /* Scan all Frequencies */
#define IW_SCAN_THIS_FREQ   0x0008  /* Scan only this Frequency */
#define IW_SCAN_ALL_MODE    0x0010  /* Scan all Modes */
#define IW_SCAN_THIS_MODE   0x0020  /* Scan only this Mode */
#define IW_SCAN_ALL_RATE    0x0040  /* Scan all Bit-Rates */
#define IW_SCAN_THIS_RATE   0x0080  /* Scan only this Bit-Rate */

Does hostapd support remote logging of Open and WEP wireless events?

Hi All,
 
Using hostapd I'm able to receive wireless events for WPA in syslog server, but not able to receive wireless events for OPEN and WEP.
 
Does hostapd supports logging of wireless events(association, disassociation, authentication, key handshake etc.,) for OPEN and WEP as well?
 
If so, can any one let me know how can I enable them? else
 
Can can some tell me procedure to handle them.
 
Thanks,
Sharad.

Thank you Pavel:

I have tried with the first livecd I got around, an 8.10 Ubuntu. In the
laptop it was working correctly. I have tried in this one and it wasn't
working. The livecd is the same in both so, the problem isn't in the os
or the configuration.

I don't know where to look now. Maybe the hardware is failing ?. But the
rest of the hardware is working correctly, and I have two USB
controllers (VIA (UHCI and EHCI) and SiS (OHCI)). Maybe the problem is
with the driver or the Wireless architecture in the kernel. I will ask
there.

Any idea that could bright this darkness ?

Thank you again,
