Ok, that's great news! I'll work harder at trying to get it all working
then, thanks! 5:)

Hmmm, my wireless card is listed by lspci as :
Intel Corporation Centrino Advanced-N 6205 [Taylor Peak] (rev 34)
using the kernel Intel Wireless WiFi Next Gen AGN (iwlwifi) option with
DVM and MVM firmware support enabled as modules. The wpa_supplicant has
the following drivers enabled in .config:
ATMEL, HOSTAP, IPW, NDISWRAPPER, NL80211, RALINK, WEXT, WIRED
It has CONFIG_P2P and CONFIG_WIFI_DISPLAY enabled, but does not have
CONFIG_AP, or any of the CONFIG_WPS_* settings enabled.

Is there any other debugging output I can enable, or anything I can do
to find out which driver's in use, and possibly why the P2P module
wasn't started automatically? Sorry if my questions are a bit basic or
have an obvious answer, I'm just starting up with the
internals/configuration of wpa_supplicant. Thanks!
