Hi all

Im using my ibook G4 wireless with the bcm43xx driver and kernel 2.6.22 gentoo sources.

The problem is, the wireless doesnt dissassociate when i disconnect so when I try to reconnect i get

Code:

Already associating or associated


all the time so it never reconnects.

Any ideas?

Try a newer kernel? There's been a ton of changes, including an entirely new wireless stack.

The only reason why im running such an old kernel is because of mac on linux.

cheers or replies


EDIT

kernel update and reinstall of firmware has solved it

cheers
