I didn't forget, I'm just a bit late.

Thanks for the tip with 'iwd', it connects flawlessly (and fast) to all my
APs, including that troublesome LTE router 🙂️. I like 'iwd'; wonder why it
isn't the default in distributions.

I created some netlink traces anyway. I'm sending them to you in private mails,
because I don't want potentially sensitive information about my network
posted to this public mailing list.
