SubjectRe: [2.6.26-rc4] Problems with rt2x00 USB interface on powerpc (fwd)
Hi, Ivo, John, Linus and all the people at the mailing lists.

It seems that I'm flooded with bad luck. :-( I tried the modifications
in the script attached (progressively uncommenting the commands, as you
asked me), but it seems that I had the bad luck that nothing worked with
kernel 2.6.26-rc5. I also tried with kernel 2.6.26-rc9, but again,
nothing worked [*].

The only thing that gave a signal of life was when I imitated what you
did and set the led register to the value that was present on the
2.6.25.x kernel. Then, a "iwconfig wlan0 ap any" gave me blinks on the
"Act" led each time that I issued the command.

Attached also is the "meat" of the dmesg of my system. You may notice
that after some time, I tried simply "ifdown wlan0" and "ifup wlan0" in
my Debian system. These commands are responsible, as you should guess,
for bringing an interface down and up.

I have not checked closely, but it seems that the modifications to the
registers are lost when you bring the interface down---is that right?
From the dmesg logs, this seems to be the case.

Again, I didn't do everything in one single shot. I tested your
directions one at a time (first the 1st one, then, the 1st set and the
2nd set, then the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd set etc).

I attach to this message the commands that I used. As you can see, I
tried some which seemed to me (as a layman) that would make some
difference, but they did nothing. :-( My commands were based on some of
the differences that you narrowed down in the last message.

Thank you very much, Rogério Brito.

[*] Actually, I got it once to work/authenticate with kernel 2.6.26-rc9,
but I couldn't reproduce the steps to that. I tried loading all the
registers this time with the script that I attach here, and I was so sad
that it didn't work a second time (and a third, etc) that I was running
a script that did:

"ifconfig wlan0 up; iwconfig wlan0 key s:xxx; iwconfig wlan0 essid
default" && iwconfig wlan0

Not even once it showed that it was associated with the ap, but once in
a while (not every time) that I run the line above the "act" led blinked
and the messages generated on the dmesg were slightly different from one
time to another (compressed, the log is quite small).
