Atheros 9k mac address based login disconnects
|Reported by:||cb88||Owned by:||nobody|
|Component:||Network & Internet||Version:||R1/Development|
|Has a Patch:||no||Platform:||All|
Steps to reproduce problem in my case: boot haiku
get wifi working (required that I fill in some info manually then set to static otherwise the link wouldn't come up)
open Web+ acess login page (this nearly always works correctly)
Then several things may happen: redirects then locks up. redirects incorrectly back to login page. redirects correctly and then stops working after a few seconds or minutes.
My school apparently uses Miro APs which have unencrypted access and block acess via mac address blocking (I think)

I can upload any logs that would be useful in debugging as I have haiku installed to my HD once again. There are possibly problems in several areas the browser the driver and the ip/dns configuration etc.... the driver seems fine it runs fast enough when it does connect. There is a open ap at another school I know of that I will also try on I imagine it works fine there.
