Description Caolan McNamara 2006-03-09 11:26:08 EST
I guess the bcm43xx driver is doing the wrong thing, but the following patch
allows wpa_supplicant to detect that my bcm32xx has associated and authenticated
again my WEP access point. NetworkManager's dhclient then runs and everything
looks great, as opposed to the current "associated timeout" error.

Sadly a iwlist scan, and/or NetworkManagers equivalent scan hoses the
connection, so I only get a miniscule window before the connection dies. So this
is of limited utility I guess unless bcm43xx can keep it's connection alive
during scanning, but perhaps useful to identify what needs to be fixed in the
driver for association.
