Hallo Group Readers.
I run linux on my desktop. It also serves as NAT. I also have spare
USB wifi adapter I would like to use to change my linux desktop into
wifi wpa2 accesspoint.

is it possible on linux?

Depends on your WLAN adaptor. Some can be used in Master mode, others
not. Google "hostapd tutorial"

 
 
 

1. freeradius 2.x + 802.1x + wpa/wpa2 + win xp

Hi I have problem with wrt54gl v1.1, ddwrt v24 mini +freeradius (2.0.5)
+ wirelesscard wpc54g v3.1 with wxp with patch to use wpa/wpa2
I think that authentication in my radius pass correct but there is some
problem with wpa mode or wpa compatibility

In my ddwrt I try mode: wpa-enterprise, wpa2-enterprise, wpa2
enterpise-mix and radius. In my wirless card a try: wpa and wpa2

below my freeradius.conf:

andy Auth-Type := Accept, User-Password == "andy"

and log from radius:

rad_check_password: Auth-Type = Accept, accepting the user Login OK:
[andy] (from client wrt54g port 0 cli 00-18-F8-aa-aa-aa)
Sending Access-Accept of id 4 to 10.0.0.6 port 1026

my wrt54g still send to syslog:




and i never connect to network and i must still (every 30s) type login
and password to authenticate When i use only wep, without radius,it's works.

I use all may ports 4xLan+1XWan in vlan0 as the switchport.
I try setup radius+wep/wpa in wrv200 but the problem is the same

I have dwl900ap+ from dlink and when I use radius + wep 64bit everything
works
i don't have any idea
thanks for any help
