I connect to both WEP and WPA-PSK networks using a wpi card (built in to
an HP laptop) with wpa_supplicant.

It sometimes disconnects (perhaps a few times a day), and "ifconfig wpi0
down up" fixes it.

"wiconfig wpi0 -D" sometimes works and sometimes doesn't work for me
(one common error is "wiconfig: ioctl: Operation now in progress").
Nevertheless, wpa_supplicant is always able to associate with networks
that are configured in /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf.
