where is wpa_supplicant?
I used google before posted this topic.
after start does not plug into wifi network I have wait lots(maybe 75 sec) . I dont know how modify this time.
If I understand you correctly, it does eventually connect, but it takes about 75 seconds, and then it will die out? or do you maintain connection?
I believe the issue is that specific card has had issues with compatibility. I googled and found this to be helpful.
I read this, and it sounded similar to your issue.
and about wpa_supplicant...
it would be in the sessions, down towards the bottom of list, if it is installed...
go to services ....
find wpa_supplicant, check and hit enable....
if it enables...then you have wireless, otherwise it will give you an error...you should post that error so that we can see what the problem is.
