Sigh. I just updated a year-old, working Haiku installation to hrev46368, and for a while I thought the whole wireless stuff was broken. Not so, it seems – if I wait long enough.
Let me clarify: if I try to connect to a WPA/WPA2 network using the atheroswifi, the Connect Wireless Network window will fail if I try to connect immediately, nor will it allow me to save the password. However – and I only learned this because I was writing this post – given some time, like a few minutes, it will connect and allow a password save. On the other hand, it connects to the wireless network with what is listed sometimes as a WEP connection, other times as what it is, a WPA connection. Huh? Anyone have any idea what’s going on?
I’d like to automate the wireless connection and login at start-up, but I’m a bit concerned with the apparent “lag.” Any ideas?
