brcm47xx wifi does not associate although apparently normal on the console

Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: base system Version: Trunk

Description

Hello,

Target is Asus RT-N16. Built trunk r42619 for two routers with same result.

CONFIG_TARGET_brcm47xx=y
CONFIG_TARGET_brcm47xx_mips74k=y
CONFIG_TARGET_brcm47xx_mips74k_Broadcom-mips74k-wl=y

After reboot (many) console is apparently normal:
Broadcom BCM4329 802.11bgn (wl0)
Channel: 10 (2.457 GHz) | Bitrate: 54 Mbit/s

[Signal: 1 dBm / Noise: -82 dBm]

100% SSID: maxnet | Mode: Master
BSSID: xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx (hid it) | Encryption: WPA2 PSK (CCMP)

But ifconfig says no received packets and lots of errors:
wl0 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx

UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST MTU:1500 Metric:1
RX packets:0 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:127293
TX packets:3 errors:1586 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
RX bytes:0 (0.0 B) TX bytes:362 (362.0 B)
Interrupt:3 Base address:0x1000

On my laptop the SSID is not seen

After changing something on the console /Network/WiFi/Edit and Save&Apply, starts working immediately until next reboot.

This didn't happen with previous build r40873 brcm47xx generic with brcm47xx_Broadcom-wl and kmod-mac80211, the later I didn't include now (should I?)

Thank you for your excellent work, couldn't live without it. My two RT-N16, linked by openvpn, even run asterisk11 with QoS with 4 trunk connections, 6 extensions, plus ftp server, all without a glitch.

Rgds,
jss
