Hi!

After i google on internet, i need to setup WPA with ndiswrapper. I followed instruction on ndiswrapper to setup WPA. Here id output:
[root@localhost ~]# ifconfig wlan0 up
[root@localhost ~]# wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd Initializing interface 'wlan0' conf '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf' driver 'wext' ctr l_interface 'N/A'
Configuration file '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf' -> '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf'
Reading configuration file '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf'
Failed to read read or parse configuration '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf'.
Failed to add interface wlan0
Cancelling scan request
Cancelling authentication timeout

even though i changed Dwext to dndiswrapper

[root@localhost ~]# wpa_supplicant -Dndiswrapper -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd
Initializing interface 'wlan0' conf '/etc/wpa_supplicant.conf' driver 'ndiswrapper' ctrl_interface 'N/A'
