New beta release for YDL's kernel for PS3

I tested out today new beta kernel released for PS3. It indeed seems that some progress was done with firmware 2.00. I can nicely see that access point scan shows better values for my WPA1+2 network. Actually it shows now new WPA2 values.

Now everything would had been nice if YDL had also updated this aspect on their kernel update... Now it tells that we have this new type of security and this version of driver doesn't actually know how to handle it correctly... Rebooting and trying to reload network again (/etc/init.d/network restart) got it associated nicely.

In bleeding edge driver there are new encryption modes that should be settable with 'iwpriv eth0 set_alg 4' for WPA2-PSK TKIP and 'iwpriv eth0 set_alg 5' for WPA2-PSK AES. But YDL's kernel driver doesn't accept values of 4 and 5... So if you are running WPA1 only network, then your setup should work fine (haven't tested it out though), if you also have WPA2 enabled then you may have some problems making connection.

Is there anyway to get WPA Personal AES to work with your wireless tools package? ap_sec=0202 is what I get when scan.

Does this new kernel invalidate your how-to on getting WPA working on the ps3 or is it still valid?

Did anyone tried YLD 6.0? Does WPA_PSK work out of the box with it?

I really need some help getting my WEP enabled router to work on YDL 6.0 with PS3 firmware 2.20. I am connecting to a MAC router if that makes any difference. I can't install the rpm file (says I have newest version) and I am confused as to where to put the --force, in the file name: "....ppc64.rpm--force"? or in a command prompt with the file location info followed by a --force? It says on TerraSoft Solutions website for encryption to be spaced every 2 digits, should it be entered in this way or with no spaces, again this is a WEP encryption? Any advice you can provide for my situation, YDL version, ps3 firmware and WEP, is greatly appreciated. Thanks
