Anyone using latest build: 2012-10-28-wheezy-raspbian

and have a working Wireless USB ?

I can't get it to work.

I can browset wireless networks but as soon I try to connect over wpa2
it failes, I tried two different usb sticks to be sure and got the same problem.

I think the included driver don't work with the kernal version, and I cant find any new driver to download aswell...

First I been trying to get it up from the included app under startx
(there I can see all networks around me, and signal)
But impossible to connect.

then from bash, ifup --force wlan0
nothing works.

You need wpa_supplicant to handle wpa/wpa2 encrypted networks - viewtopic.php?f=50&t=19072&p=187090#p187090

I got mine to work and it was my fault.

I hade an MAC access list table in my AP and I hade enterd all the MAC but I never clicked Save and activate.

The thing I got fooled was that the Raspi said it was a driver error all the time.

Soo there is nothing wrong with the N150 driver.

(sorry for the misstake)
