    Gutsy , wpa_supplicant stopped working !

    Hi,

    I'm still on Gutsy and suddenly (after the last update which updated only update-manager and update-manager-core) my atheros ar5212 chipset can't connect to my access point. Instead it keeps trying to connect to other access points.

    I didn't change any setting, I'm not using network manager, it's all in /etc/network/interfaces and was working very well.

    In htop I see that wpa_supplicant often launches, normal because it can't connect.

    I checked the wireless connection on Windows with my usual settings and it's fine...

    Anyone else having this kind of problem ?

    Update broke your patched madwifi driver. That is what happened. Need to recompile or just reinstall the driver.

    Thanks a lot for replying !
    Something got updated lately in Gutsy regarding the wireless stack ? I didn't notice.
    I didn't recompile yet because "iwlist scanning" for instance works so thought it wasn't a madwifi problem.
