    seeking embedded unwired client

    hi everyone,
    I'm seeking a library with wpa implementation, I seen hostapd, but it's so ugly.
    I've tried make test_wpa from this project and just spend so much time so as to make it to work. I made this Makefile, but anyway I obtain so much undefined errors.

    Embedded Linux wireless

    I am more awake now but wanted to add one thing. If you have even a basic Linux install on your embedded device, the "wifi" part is purely a matter of configuration in Linux and the IO is straight network packets. At least that is how it was when I was doing embedded Linux on the Handspring many moons ago for a medical device firm. IOW you (I) didn't need any special code or libs for wifi...YMMV

    Hm, very interesting.
    Its library from wireless_tools project?
    I seen libiw in this project and have tried to use iwpriv, but I've got
    wlan0 no private ioctls.
    perhaps is that means, what my wireless adapter firmware doesn't supported by this lib?
    and how about wpa?
    I mean, it I adjust my wi-fi netcard for SSID, pass, encryption and so on... it should work?
    And about suggestion kannel-dev project I afraid, because it just sms\wap gataway, I'm seeking wpa.
