Jouni - Thank you very much for quick and accurate advice.  Indeed, appending the '-Dwext' switch to the wpa_supplicant call works with version 2.3.  What is the proper syntax for one to include this command-line switch in a conf file (/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant-wlan0.conf for example)?

The alternative I can think of is to hardcode it into a systemd service but that would not be very elegant.

Thank you again.
