I'm running wpa_supplicant (wpa_supplicant-0.5.11) on Linux FC9 (kernel

I've ath5k module loaded running on 5xxx series of Atheros 802.11 wireless
LAN card.

I'm able to run the wpa_supplicant successfully, but when i terminate it
(either ctrl-c or terminate cmd from wpa_cli), the interface(wlan0) goes
down. why this happens?

Another issue  is when i try to bring the interface up using "ifconfig wlan0
up", I get following error -

"SIOCSIFFLAGS: Resource temporarily unavailable".

I need to reboot the machine to get this resolved. Any idea what's wrong?
