How can i configure my wpa_supplicant.conf? I am using OpenWRT in my TP-link WR841N in mode STA. But I can not connect to SMC ! I want connect to SMC by wpa_supplicant! But I know it's possible in other configuration. My final objective is connect to eduroam (corporate, school, etc networks look like)

in wpa_supplican.conf, write as below. remove all....

network={
ssid="SMC"
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
proto=RSN
pairwise=CCMP
group=TKIP
psk="secret passphrase"
}

use wpa_passphrase for psk generation. You will get one kill. put psk="that key"

Then run with this command

wpa_supplicant -Dwext -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf -dd

change driver and interface name, if it is different.
