Patch is attached: 0 Pending:


While using with default settings WPA, it is getting disconnected after few minutes during rekeying. If i set iwpriv ath0 bgscan 0 - problem disappearing.Probably in same time with scan system want to do rekeying, and failing. In result it get's banned on AP (Mikrotik).

Also system locking up (not completely, but everything becoming very slow, even typing on keyboard and switching VT's), if i do iwpriv ath0 writereg 0x987c 235 (or any other value) in monitor mode. In STA mode everything fine. Possible there is some issue with locking.
