I'm not sure what you are doing, but for Arch+ignite, I run these two commands as seperate services and it just works: dhcpcd -qLB -t 0 -C wpa_supplicant -C timezone -C hostname wlan0 wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -D nl80211,wext -c/etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf I can change the wlan or add new ones via wpa_cli/wpa_gui. -- Christian Neukirchen <chneukirchen@...il.com> http://chneukirchen.org
