Re: wpa_supplicant and ral(4): RTM_IEEE80211: disassoc (102)

I tried to merge wpa_supplicants logs and syslog with the debug output of 
ieee80211 (using python2.6's heapq.merge() ). File is attached (gzip'ed).

Maybe not completely accurate, as syslog's granularity is seconds, but one 
should get an idea what wpa_supplicant does.

Unfortunately, I'm not that experiences in reading that, so I hope it does tell 
you (or anybody else here) something.

This is now a completely different network (in my office, Cisco APs) -  while 
the one before was at home (a single Fritz!Box AP) - but both networks show 
exactly the same behaviour (and this is also reported in the PR in a completely 
different environment).

I was able to connect to both networks with a Mac mini running 
5.0_STABLE/macppc with a bwi driver. So I really assume this is a driver 

If helpful, I could do the same exercise with that bwi card.

Best regards,


P.S.: bin/42581 is meanwhile recategorized to kern/42581
