My laptop has both an 802.11b wireless and 100Mb/s wired interfaces.
After doing some reading it looks like what I want is a bonding
interface with them. I want both interfaces to act as one, whichever
one is attached to the network, so that if I unplug the 100Mb/s
everything automatically switches to wlan. I have that set up and half
When my 100M/b interface is plugged in, everything through bond0 works
just fine, however the wlan0 slave interface configured to use
wpa_supplicant is not configuring correctly with wpa_supplicant. This
interface works fine with wpa_supplicant when used in a non-bonding
configuration so he basics seem to be met.
Here is the wpa_supplicant log from trying to set up with the AP while
being a bonded slave interface can be found at
I am using the latest on the 0.2.x cvs branch.
What is going wrong?
