Hi hackers@ I know there's been a lot of work in -current (and maybe some of this has been MFC'd, not sure) regarding wlan stuff over the last year; this is why I'm asking about this here. As I'm having a few issues  with connecting reliably with wifi on stable/13-n253168-46c09d766d26 amd64, do I stand a better chance of solving them with either upgrading the os to -current or installing any of security/wpa_supplicant security/wpa_supplicant-devel security/wpa_supplicant29 instead of using the wpa_supplicant in base?  it's using ath0 for wlan0. It's set up as a wireless client with SYNCDHCP. /var/log/messages has this over and over: Dec 21 18:25:41 REDACTED ntpd: error resolving pool 2.uk.pool.ntp.org: Name does not resolve (8) Dec 21 18:26:10 REDACTED kernel: ath0: ath_edma_recv_tasklet: sc_inreset_cnt > 0; skipping Dec 21 18:26:48 REDACTED ntpd: error resolving pool 2.uk.pool.ntp.org: Name does not resolve (8) Dec 21 18:27:52 REDACTED syslogd: last message repeated 1 times Dec 21 18:28:57 REDACTED wpa_supplicant: Successfully initialized wpa_supplicant Dec 21 18:28:57 REDACTED wpa_supplicant: ioctl[SIOCS80211, op=20, val=0, arg_len=7]: Invalid argument Dec 21 18:28:57 REDACTED syslogd: last message repeated 1 times Dec 21 18:28:57 REDACTED wpa_supplicant: ioctl[SIOCS80211, op=103, val=0, arg_len=128]: Operation now in progress Dec 21 18:28:57 REDACTED wpa_supplicant: wlan0: CTRL-EVENT-SCAN-FAILED ret=-1 retry=1 until I restart wlan0 and wpa_supplicant 15 or so times, it eventually synchs: wlan0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> metric 0 mtu 1500 ether xx;xx:xx:xx:xx:xx inet 192.168.1.71 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255 groups: wlan ssid REDACTED_5G channel 108 (5540 MHz 11a ht/40+) bssid yy:yy:yy:yy:yy:yy regdomain ETSI country GB indoor ecm authmode WPA2/802.11i privacy ON deftxkey UNDEF AES-CCM 2:128-bit AES-CCM 3:128-bit txpower 23 bmiss 7 mcastrate 6 mgmtrate 6 scanvalid 60 ampdulimit 64k ampdudensity 4 shortgi -uapsd wme burst roaming MANUAL Once the connection is established, it's stable. But why won't it connect post-reboot? and would upgrading the os to current or installing the above-mentioned ports help? tia, --
