Comment (by paulfxh):

 I've been following progress here for some time and was glad to see that
 the problem had been resolved. But, unfortunately, doesn't work for me.

 I'm using a EeePC 901 with a ralink2860 wifi card and a wpa2 encrypted
 network. Since last October, I've been able to get perfect wifi
 connections in various Haiku nightlies on this machine.

 With more recent nightlies, however, wifi no longer connects.

 Strangely, when I boot up, a popup tells me that /dev/net/ralink2860/0 has
 connected. However, no connection has been made.

 Right now, I'm using hrev43955 on this machine and, once again, no wifi.

 If I quit wpa_supplicant and start it again from a terminal, here's the
 output I get when I try to connect wifi from the Network Status demo:

 Setting scan request: 5 sec 0 usec
 Scan SSID - hexdump_ascii(len=10):
      55 50 43 30 30 34 32 30 32 32                     UPC0042022

 Try to find non-WPA AP
 0: 00:80:c6:ab:48:69 ssid='' wpa_ie_len=28 rsn_ie_len=0 caps=0x0
    skip - SSID not known
 No suitable network found


 This repeats ad infinitum.

 Also, the wifi connect dialog box doesn't seem to remember my wpa security
 password even though I check the "Store this configuration" box as it
 comes up empty every time.

 Even though wpa_supplicant can't seem to find my wifi networks, the
 Network Status demo picks them up without problem as does "ifconfig
 /dev/net/ralink2860/0 list".

 I've also tried to connect to wifi using the appropriate "ifconfig join"
 command, but unsurprisingly, this gives the very same result.

 Note that the card is fine as it works perfectly in Ubuntu in another
 partition on the same machine.
