We do something similar in our test environment. Our wpa_supplicant.conf
file is essentially

and then we do subsequent configuration via the control interface. If
you want to do this without loading a driver, you might need to start
the supplicant with the -w option, but IIRC this option will be going
away in a future release.

	Hi all,
	I am searching for a solution "How to start wpa_supplicant in
daemon mode with out giving any configuration and interface options, so
that I can give the detials by wpa_cli when ever I required to connect."

	I have two interfaces eth0 and wlan0,  some times I use eth0 and
some times wlan0 for connectivity.  So what I am thinking is, I will
start wpa_supplicant as a startup script by without giving any
interface, username and password deatils. After booting up, depending
upon my requirement I will pass the details to wpa_supplicant daemon by
	Can any tell me, is this works or not?
	Thanks and regards,
