Here's sme additional detail, as I was a bit rushed to get to work
when I filed the PR.
* The NIC is a "Dell TrueMobile 1150 Series PC Card" (in a miniPCI
form factor). That NIC is explicitly listed in wi(4) as supported.
* On killing & re-starting wpa-supplicant, ifconfig(8) shows another
"fake" association to an access point with a null SSDI, but this
time, using channel 8 (vs. the use of 3 in the previously-cited
* I have a 3rd access point (that is small enough that I'm in the habit
of keeping it in my laptop bag when it's not in use). Since it,
unlike the previously-cited access points, is not normally being
used by other folks, I can experiment with its settings as part
of testing, if that would be useful.
* I also have available an iwi(4) miniPCI card for which wpa_supplicant
has worked. However, I'd prefer to minimize switching the miniPCI
cards back & forth, as it's a bit difficult to get the antenna
lead reconnected each time, and breaking the lead is pretty easy
(I've managed to accomplish this once before, much to my chagrin
I will start poking around again to see if I can persuade wpa_cli
to do something useful.
