FYI for me, the 220.127.116.11-libre-lemote when combined with a backport of
network-manager 0.7 -
http://config.fsf.org/misc/yeeloong-n-m-backport.tgz - work well 100% of
the time with both of the WPA access points I have access to at the
moment. (Previously, one worked about half the time and the other not at
all - lxo incidentally the novatel mifi works great now).
Tonight I hope to test in the other environment I've seen yeeloong wifi
suck, locations with a bunch of different APs with the same essid (such
as college campuses).
For network-manager 0.7, make sure that none of your external network
interfaces (eth0, wlan0) are listed at all in your
/etc/network/interfaces file - if they are, 0.7 will not manage them.
The backport required no porting work, it's just compiled from the
If included in gnewsense (which I think it really needs to be, at least
on mipsel), we'll want to verify / make sure that nothing other than the
loopback interface gets stuck in /etc/network/interfaces on a clean install.
Woo-hoo, working wifi! :-)
