ral(4) and wpa_supplicant?


which wifi cards are supported by wpa_supplicant(8)?  Lacking support for
my laptop's built-in BCM4315 card, I'm trying with an USB ral(4) card.
This is with NetBSD/i386 5.0_RC3.

I can connect to open or WEP-protected AP's using ifconfig(8) only.  But
I'd prefer to use WPA/RSN instead.

Trying to connect to any network (open/WEP/WPA/RSN) with wpa_supplicant
results in:

Trying to associate with 00:0b:86:33:7f:f1 (SSID='foo' freq=2437 MHz)
ioctl[SIOCS80211, op 21, len 42]: Invalid argument
Association request to the driver failed
Authentication with 00:0b:86:33:7f:f1 timed out.

I've tried both wpa_supplicant 0.6.4 shipped with 5.0_RC3 and 0.6.7 from
