wpa_supplicant 0.5.4

2 new things with this release:

  • Specifying ndiswrapper or madwifi backend driver no longer work. For ndiswrapper it does not even connect and for madwifi the connection is hard to establish and unstable. I did not find it in the documentation but using the wext driver for both, works. It means that the wpa-driver line can be removed from the interface file (in /etc/wpa_supplicant/ifupdown.sh we can see that wext is the default).
  • I no longer need to remove the ath_pci driver to reconnect.
