    Hi,

    I have an original Verizon Droid, running Froyo, which works fine at home.

    I'm travelling in Japan, and rented a Buffalo portable router, a BF-01B, I think.

    I can connect to the router fine with my netbook (Acer), but for some reason, I cannot connect with the Droid.

    In dmesg, I see "incompatible channel source information" messages.

    I think it's because the router is set to WPA2, and, for some reason the Droid won't work with that.

    The place I rented said that all the router config is in Japanese, which I can't read, so they don't want me to try to re-configure it to just WPA, so I'm kind of stuck :(...

    I have ADB working from my netbook, so does anyone know if maybe I can do something and edit wpa_supplicant.conf to make this work?

    Here's what wpa_supplicant.conf looks like now:

    # cat wpa_supplicant.conf
    cat wpa_supplicant.conf
    ##### wpa_supplicant configuration file template #####
    update_config=1
    ctrl_interface=tiwlan0
    eapol_version=1
    ap_scan=1
    fast_reauth=1

    Thanks!!

    Jim
