How much time it takes to get disconnected event after the group key
handshake was finished? Ideally, I would like to see wireless sniffer
trace showing whether the disconnection was caused by the AP sending
deauth or disassoc frame to the station. Other option would be that
madwifi driver decided for some reason (e.g., missed beacons) that the
AP was not there anymore. Adding/Enabling some debug code in madwifi
should show if this is the cause.
