# grep -E -2 "proto=|key_mgmt=|pairwise=|group=|eap=|phase2=" /etc/
wpa_supplicant.conf
network={
        priority=0
        key_mgmt=NONE
}

Config of active wireless network looks like 

network={
ssid=",,,"
scan_ssid=0
psk="..."
priority=4
}


Global section of /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf

ctrl_interface=/var/run/wpa_supplicant
eapol_version=2
ap_scan=1
fast_reauth=1

 No it fals to associate with same symptoms as wpa_supplicant from base.
