bernalex ... no :) ... but I'd hazard a guess that its due to WEXT, specifically the CFG80211_WEXT compatibility layer. Unfortunately if you disable it (legacy) apps that use WEXT (iwconfig, iwlist, wicd, and others) will nolonger work, but it is somewhat flaky IMO, and if not absolutely needed should be disabled, CONFIG_CFG80211_WEXT=n.

Assuming your using wpa_supplicant you would then need to have wpa_supplicant use 'nl80211' natively (which is a good idea regardless of disabling CFG80211_WEXT).

/etc/conf.d/net
Code:
wpa_supplicant_wlan0="-Dnl80211"

As I said, its a guess on my part, but I had issues with iwlwifi when helping a friend some months back and disabling CFG80211_WEXT resolved the issue.

HTH & best ... khay
