When I look at the messages from my failed attempts to
authenticate with wpa_supplicant, I notice the
following:

Selecting BSS from priority group 0

rsn_ie_len=0 caps=0x11

Trying to associate with 00:40:96:47:ae:49
(SSID='tsunami' freq=0 MHz)

What is the significance of "freq=0 MHz"? The
frequency should be 2.462 GHz for that particular
access point.
