iwlwifi(iwlagn 5100-5) cannot be brought up using wpa_supplicant
GhostBSD 3.5-BETA1 LIVEUSB
Linux dz2hrz291 3.5.0-36-generic #57~precise1-Ubuntu SMP Thu Jun 20 15:22:35 UTC 2013 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
first I tried with the network manager itself, and nothing works; then I tried using wpa_supplicant command with configuration file(definitely sure about username and passwd correctness), failed again saying "wext" is not supported(such like this, not so exact), same errror I got when I remove that "-D wext" switch.
I noticed that the wifi button is not blinking, however when I do the same thing on linux, it is telling me it has detected the wifi signal.
BTW, my wpa_supplicant.conf looks like:
ssid = "xxxxx"
Please correct me if I did wrong here.
my wifi interface is called wlan0, however when I using ifconfig, it could only find iwn0 and other ethernet interfaces, trials on iwn0 also failed.
just using USB pen drive and run it, will reproduce this problem
