Hi List,

I can't get my WLAN (WPA) to work and I am somewhat at a loss, as to what
else to try...

The /etc/rc.conf portion looks like this:

ifconfig_wi0="WPA DHCP"

My /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf looks like this:


The above should be fine in terms of how it is set up.

Invoking ifconfig on the interface tells me that it is connected, however,
there's still no internet connection.

# ifconfig wi0
wi0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500
   ether 00:02:2d:0f:4f:99
   inet netmask 0xff000000 broadcast
   media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (DS/2Mbps)

   stationname "FreeBSD WaveLAN/IEEE node"
   authmode WPA1+WPA2/802.11i privacy MIXED deftxkey UNDEF bmiss 7

My OS is FreeBSD 7.0.

Any support is greatly appreciated.
