So after much struggling using wpa_supplicant with an SMC 7004WVBR, I
have gone out and bought a Linksys WRT54GS and my blood pressure has
gone way down.  This thing's WPA "just works".  No having to reboot APs,
restart wpa_supplicant, ifup/down interfaces etc.

Simply put, the SMC 7004WVBR is a big stinkin' smoking bag of crap (as
least where WPA is concerned).  Stay away from it at all costs.  Spend a
bit more and get something that works.

Glad mine was free.
