Hi,

 

I have a dell laptop with intel wireless card (ipw2200) and am trying to
configure it to use WPA-PSK.

 

I have setup up the card correctly utilizing the ipw2200 module,
wpa_supplicant and wireless_tools.

 

If I use a broadcast ssid everything works, however if I turn off the
broadcast on the ap and do a debug of the wpa, it recognizes that there is a
hidden ssid but will not connect to it.

 

I would rather use hidden ssids than not but how can I get it to connect?

 

Please can you also tell me a quick way to restart the interface to make it
go through all the negotiaton, as I have moved from ubuntu where
/etc/init.d/networking restart did it

 

Cheers

 

Paul
