Hello!

This problem is on the same machine as my recent posts

(http://sisyphus.iocaine.com/pipermail/hostap/2004-December/008668.html).

although that thread is concerning a different interface, I wonder if they
are related.

The computer is a p233MMX with 256Mb. The broadcast interface is a dwl520
revision E pci card (hostap_fw_load loads 1.5.6)  the Client interface is
an unlabeled zcomax clone with firmware 1.3.6 (I think, its early anyway)
in a Ricoh pcmcia/pci bridge.  Everything had been working fine until a
few weeks ago, and in the last few days has gotten worse.

In this email the client interface seems to be "sticking" because I can
dis-associate/re-associate and it will start to work again, sometimes it
fixes itself!!  Here is what happened last night.
Let me know if you need more info.

It had just fixed ITSELF above.  I had a nagios alert DOWN at 9:53, then
back UP at 10:26 on 12/2/04... All was fine (I guess) until 4:47am...

And then at 6:37am when I dial up and log into this machine, change the
essid (iwconfig wlan0 essid lkjhsdfg) then change it back to the correct
essid:

And away we go again.  I fact i had a ping runnin on the other end, that
immediately started to reply when I issued the command...

I had a Nagios DOWN alert at 4:53am and a Nagios UP alert at 6:42 (is a
few minutes delay with Nagios, I see).  Do I have some hardware starting
to die?  Help!

Thanks all

Jerryf
