Description of problem:
A connection to a wireless network will fail, and /var/log/messages shows that the connection was in fact successful, but as soon as the "Activation (eth1) successful, device activated." appears, a "SWITCH: need to associate with new access point or create a wireless network." also appears with a timestamp in the same second. The successful connection is indeed confirmed by appropriate DHCP info appearing in the syslog output, but the subsequent attempt at connection, just after the SWITCH, fails and iwconfig shows that an attempt to connect with "restricted" is attempted instead of "open". This occurs slightly more than half of the time. This seems to be more prelavent when the AP isn't broadcasting it's ESSID (and hence the association was kicked of by choosing "Other wireless networks..")
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Either select the ESSID in the list, or use "Other wireless networks..."
Actual Results: connection failed
Expected Results: connection should have succeeded
kernel-2.6.10-1.770 and wireless is ipw2100, AP requires 128 bit wep key and security mode is open
