I have not been able to reproduce these problems since PR 1.1.1 and am
interested to hear if anyone is still suffering the same issue?
Comment 3 Lucas Maneos 2010-03-02 13:53:56 UTC
Always worked fine for me with OpenWRT on various Buffalo airstations. 
Currently using a WHR-HP-G54 running kamikaze 8.09 (r14511) with kernel 2.4 and
the broadcom driver.
Comment 4 Danilo Câmara 2010-03-08 22:07:10 UTC
No more connection errors for me (Linksys dd-wrt, WPA2 Personal/AES).
Comment 5 Danilo Câmara 2010-03-17 03:05:39 UTC
I thought PR1.1.1 firmware had solved this bug for me but it just took longer
for the problem to happen again.

When it happens, if I change DD-WRT router to WEP, N900 connects. If I left in
WPA2 Personal AES it will only connect if I reboot N900. Reboot the router
doesn't help.

@Danilo: We still have this bug open internally, I have managed to reproduce it
too.

I've begun to hit a problem (this bug I think) over the last few days.

It's been fine since 1.1.1 but has been getting less happy about connecting -
eventually after a couple of N900 reboots it will connect.

I have 2 WRT54G setup as so:
Firmware           OpenWrt White Russian - With X-Wrt Extensions 0.9
Kernel          Linux 2.4.30 #1 Wed Aug 8 08:21:33 CDT 2007
MAC          00:1E:E5:5B:55:C2
Device         Linksys WRT54G/GS/GL
Board         Broadcom BCM947XX
Version        r3978

The original problem was moving from one AP to the other. That seems fixed now.

here's a dmesg snippet. Notice it kinda connected and then dropped by itself.
The second time it stayed up and I ssh'ed in ... that seems to help.
