How do I integrate a Laird supplicant in the SSD45/MSD45 on the Linux platform?

The supplicant is slightly more complex. Laird recommends that you do not attempt to do this without first doing a step by step check of the driver and kernel integration and patch.

If you must integrate our supplicant, you will need our libsdc_sdk, sdc_cli, and our firmware. Our firmware will work fine with the standard driver/supplicant. The following parts are needed:




sdcsupp and sdc_cli typically go in /usr/bin typically goes in /usr/lib


A symlink goes in /usr/lib:

lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root            17 Mar 28  2014 ->

For the Laird supplicant, sdcsupp, we do not use the /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf, but instead the sdc_cli to create a file that is stored in /etc/summit/ called profiles.conf.  This file does not need to be specified, so the launch should look like the following:

sdcsupp  -Dnl80211 -iwlan0

Here is an example of how to create a profile for use with the sdcsupp (Profile name is miles_profile and SSID is some_ssid.  This was done assuming there is an open AP):

#sdc_cli profile list

Default ACTIVE

# sdc_cli profile miles_profile add

# sdc_cli profile miles_profile set ssid some_ssid

# sdc_cli profile miles_profile activate
