Bug#497695: iwlwifi: roaming between access points does not work
 
Package: linux-2.6
Severity: normal

I am using WEP and need to roam between two access points. This does not
work anymore (it worked fine with ipw3945) and when I hit this condition
I need to remove and reload the driver.

Linux bongo.bofh.it 2.6.26-1-686 #1 SMP Thu Aug 28 12:00:54 UTC 2008 i686 GNU/Linux

0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection (rev 02)

This is a Dell D620.

It turned out that new style wifi drivers need wpa_supplicant *even* for
normal WEP operations.
Maybe this should be documented somewhere.
