Pns-tool works in Fatdog Subject description: So why did I use it?
I connect many devices running Fatdog--but recently I need to connect to an open hidden network. All the machines do it quickly and one not at all: an Acer laptop with an Atheros card that works great elsewhere. Wizards fail, commands with dhcpcd all end up "waiting for carrier" then timing out. I imported pns-tool from an old pup into /usr/sbin, and it works every time. I don't have to invoke "hidden network" or any special driver additions in the process. It appears to use the same ath9K. Just correctly; why?
I tried replacing the /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf with the one it generates in /etc/tmp, but I still have to run pns-tool to get it to connect. How might I sniff the underlying magic...I suspect it's in the next-to-last step where it says it's taking a moment to learn about my card?
