wlan with WPA on ThinkPad T61p with Ubuntu 7.10

For some reason, i never got wlan with WPA to work right seamlessly on my ThinkPad T61p with ubuntu 7.10. So here’s a short writeup of what it takes.

  1. Stop the network
  2. Put the WPA network information in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf (see man wpa_supplicant.conf for examples)
  3. Start the wpa supplicant running wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
  4. Start the DHCP client running dhclient wlan0
