Connecting to wpa2 wireless network often doesn't work — at Version 6

Description (last modified by jackburton)

I have a wpa2 protected wireless network at home, and a laptop with an Intel 3945 wireless card. Connecting to the wireless network often fails, and I have to try many times. From the logs I see it tries to connect to various non-hidden wpa2 networks I have in the neighborhood. Sometimes it connects to my network, but it happens only once in a while.

From the net_server logs, it seems it associates to the network, but then timeouts while authenticating.

Addendum: looks like it works a bit better with static configuration (IOW: no DHCP).

I wonder if, as in Haiku ap scan is done by drivers and net_server, wpa_supplicant's ap_scan option should not be disabled (set to 0 or, maybe, 2 - see ap_scan option documentation) instead...

Have you tested recent revisions? It has been working much better for me since hrev44350, although I don't have a hidden network.

No, not really. Worked the first time, rebooted, worked also the second time (joining by hand, with ifconfig join.... Then, left the WLAN, tried to join again (without rebooting) and didn't work. Tried multiple times, also ifconfig down/up, but no luck.
