[ 000.000000] wlan0: send auth to 00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx (try 1/3)
[ 000.000000] wlan0: authenticated
[ 000.000000] wlan0: associate with 00:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx (try 1/3)

History

#1 Updated by intrigeri about 6 years ago

  • Category set to 174
  • Status changed from New to Confirmed

#2 Updated by alant about 6 years ago

  • Type of work changed from Code to Test

This should be fixed in WhisperBack master by commit a4dfd00

#3 Updated by intrigeri about 6 years ago

  • QA Check set to Ready for QA
  • Type of work changed from Test to Code

(Note: "Test" type of work is for testing new stuff, or stuff we don't write, basically. The correct way to express "implemented, must be tested" is to set QA Check to "Ready for QA". Rule of thumb: never change "Type of work" unless it was mistakenly set in the beginning, this field is here to describe the kind of task at hand, not to track its current status. Hoping it helps :)
