When I'm a bit far from my access point I noticed that ifplugd (which
I use on my wlan0 interface) starts the dhcp client before
wpa-supplicant has finished setting up the network connection.
More specifically, I see the following wpa_cli status:
Supplicant PAE state=AUTHENTICATING
while my dhclient is already launched by ifplugd and trying to get an
IP address. Is that normal?
