wpa_supllicant's nl80211 driver makes NetworkManager report 100 link quality for all access points
Sat Apr 11 17:11:35 PDT 2009
My goal is to cut down to minimum the time it takes to connect fully to
an access point.
Due to that I want to use new and probably still unfinished nl80211
It works with NetworkManager quite well (I patched wpa_supplicant to use
nl80211 when NM asks for wext)
Except one thing: NM shows 100% quality on all access points.
Is this known?
I use latest -git versions of NM, wpa_supplicant, and kernel (latest
iwlwifi-git, based on wireless-testing)
I can CC <networkmanager-list at gnome.org> as well, but I didn't because
I don't want to be accused of cross-posting... :-)
