Have been trying to diagnose why my wpa_supplicant keeps disconnecting my eepc901 wireless (rt2860sta driver) every 5 seconds with the following cryptic /var/log/syslog message:


Oct 31 22:36:13 jim-laptop-0 wpa_supplicant[2439]: CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys


Tried to increase the debug output from these events by issuing the following command:

wpa_cli -i ra0

and got no joy. The wpa_cli could not connect to wpa_supplicant.

While I am quite grateful that the NetworkManager manages to respool my wireless connection after wpa_supplicant hoses it, I would like all this background nastiness to stop.
