Box1: hostap-0.1.3 master mode, ch=13, no WEP, FW:1.5.6, kernel
Box2: hostap-0.1.3 managed mode, ch=13, no WEP, FW:1.5.6, kernel
2.6.6-1.435.2.3 (formerly: RH9/2.4.20)
Box1 and Box2 are running identical hardware. When the Box1 was running
with FC2 (2.6.6-1.435.2.3) and Box1 with RH9 (2.4.20) everything worked
fine. Now I updated also the Box2 to FC2 (2.6.6-1.435.2.3). When e.g.
the pcmcia system is restarted in Box1 (all related drivers
unloaded/loaded) the Box2 can't associate any more as it did with RH9.
With RH9 it associates almost immediately. After pcmcia restarting in
Box2 it associates immediately.
But if I run "iwconfig wlan0 channel 1" in Box1, the Box2 associates
immediately. Then I can run "iwconfig wlan0 channel 13" to get it to
The only thing which has changed is the Linux distribution/kernel. Can
anyone explain this behaviour ?
Best Regards, Jar
