Description

I have 2 WLAN cards, one 3Com PCI card and a Wistron DCMA-82 mini-pci card. Both cards have the AR5413 chip.

The problem is that both cards are reconnecting every minute with the latest madwifi-trunk-r4122 (in r4118 was the same problem).

Here are the syslog messages:

With 0.9.4-r4119 the 3Com Card works fine, but the Wistron card is not recognized by this version.

The hostapd version is 0.7.1 and i am using WPA2 (CCMP) only.
