WPA on dsi

Post by lemmymet » Fri Dec 16, 2011 2:07 pm

Hey, i use devkitpro a lot for homebrew-developement.
I run my apps nearly always in dsi-mode but is it possible to extend the network libary so it supports wpa(2)?

dswifi uses the ds custom wifi chip. doesn't the dsi have a aetheros(sp?) something or other that supports wpa2? I do not think that it is either accessible from any of the dsi mode boot loaders. I do not recall seeing any code that access it - dswifi does not. of course you could mod dswifi to handle wpa2 in software, but I am notsure how much cpu time would be left after encrypting/decrypting all of the packets in software. plus a wpa2 stack is not trivial to code.
