    Dummy STA issue

    Posted this in General Support yesterday, but I should have put it here:

    Hi, all,

    I'm running a new install of 16 on a Thinkpad T410 with the stupid Realtek wireless. I'm planning to replace that with an Intel 6200 adapter, but in the meantime I'm having serious problems connecting wirelessly at all. Dmesg is showing me the following:

    [ 161.972685] wlan0: failed to insert Dummy STA entry for the AP (error -17)
    [ 191.164204] wlan0: deauthenticating from 00:1c:df:b5:a2:e1 by local choice (reason=2)

    Anybody know what it takes to get this thing connected?

    Many thanks,

    Sean

    [SOLVED] Dummy STA issue

    Yeah, I saw that. I wish I had any idea what to do with the information there.

    I was advised to try ndiswrapper instead of using the broadcom driver, and that seems like good enough advice to call this issue solved (but I'm going to keep tethering from my phone until my Intel adapter gets here).

    Thanks.
