Description ell1e 2010-12-13 03:04:28 UTC
Description of problem:
When using wicd or NetworkManager I can list networks and attempt to connect to them, but any connection attempt to my WPA2 net will result a wrong password notification with wicd or NetworkManager asking me again for the wlan password.

wpa_supplicant output is:
    [root@jth jonas]# wpa_supplicant -Dwext -iwlan0 -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
    ioctl[SIOCGIWSCAN]: Resource temporarily unavailable

uname -a:
2.6.35.6-48.fc14.i686 (also happens with 2.6.35.9-64.fc14)

The problem appeared from one day to another without any updates to the kernel, wicd, NetworkManager or wpa_supplicant involved (or any configuration changes to the WPA2 router)

Actual results:
no connection established

Booted again today (back to 2.6.35.9-64.fc14.i686.PAE) and it works again. I am absolutely clueless about what happened :(
