Hi Bryan,

Thanks again for the suggestions. I have annexed the dump below after testing with the latest code.

The firmware related code which I mentioned is precisely only for firmware based scanning and association and I do not use them if I have to run the WPA Supplicant Src Code. 

As far as the extra prints are concerned I can see them now. So is this a hostapd Src code issue or configuration file issue?
