I've never been able to get mine to work that way. I always have to start wpa
in my /etc/network/interfaces like:
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
pre-up wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -D hostap -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf &
post-down killall wpa_supplicant
I'm connecting to a wpa ap. Below is how I've tried to set it up for init.d
activation but it never works. Instead I have to restart wpasupplicant
Can anyone see my error, or give me a clue for something to try???
