All,

I got the error when trying to use WPS with my atheros AR5416 and the option
nohwcrypt=1.

ioctl[SIOCSIWENCODEEXT]: No such file or directory
...
Driver did not support SIOCSIWENCODEEXT
State: ASSOCIATED -> DISCONNECTED
Is it a blocking error? How to work around it?

The following is a more detailed log.
