Oh yes sometime ago, i wrote an email to you about this before,
u did mention to check out if it is a driver bug.
but i don't know which driver u refer to. was it hostap driver ?
the version i'm using now is still the sept'02 copy.
my kernel wireless ext. is v12 and pcmcia-cs is v3.2.0 and
my wireless tools v25.
in the past, using Wireless Tools v25pre8 with "IWCONFIG WLAN0" run, you
will get all the info on wep keys, signal, many others and ESSID (Network
after i upgrade the wireless tools to v25 release, ESSID is now missing
from the command "IWCONFIG WLAN0" return result.
what should i check on now? any other driver to probe on?
