    I've modified it a little, and now it works 100% without patch, by
    using "iwlist scan" instead of "sleep 1" ...
    iwconfig wlan0 mode Managed essid xxx key restricted xxx
    iwconfig wlan0 ap auto channel auto # auto outside loop
    for((i = 0; i < 5; i++))
    do
    iwlist wlan0 scan >/dev/null #use scan instead of sleep
    iwconfig $DEV | grep -q "Access Point: Not-Associated"
    [ $? -ne 0 ] && break
    echo ".\c"
    done


    So, this will work for older kernel and well as 2.6.29-rc8.

    Rafael, can we close the case? It's the iwconfig sequence that used to
    work on 2.6.28-rc3 but now needs to be updated for 2.6.29-rc8.

    Thanks,
    Jeff.
