wds client + access point broken

Priority: normal Milestone: Backfire 10.03.1
Component: base system Version: Backfire 10.03.1 RC2
Keywords: Cc:


on brcm47xx 10.03.1-rc3 i set up a wds client like this:

config 'wifi-device' 'radio0'
        option 'type' 'mac80211'
        option 'macaddr' '00:00:00:00:00:00'
        option 'hwmode' '11g'
        option 'disabled' '0'
        option 'channel' '10'

config 'wifi-iface'
        option 'device' 'radio0'
        option 'network' 'lan'
        option 'ssid' 'mywds'
        option 'mode' 'sta'
        option 'wds' '1'
        option 'encryption' 'psk2'
        option 'key' '*********'

works like it should. wds client with wpa2-psk

if i add another access point like this (appended to upper /etc/config/wireless):

config 'wifi-iface'
        option 'device' 'radio0'
        option 'network' 'lan'
        option 'ssid' 'another ap'
        option 'mode' 'ap'
        option 'encryption' 'psk2'
        option 'key' '**********'

i get a lot of errors when starting /sbin/wifi:

root@wl500gp:/etc/config# wifi
Error for wireless request "Set Power Management" (8B2C) :
    SET failed on device wlan1 ; Operation not supported.
Configuration file: /var/run/hostapd-phy0.conf
Using interface wlan0 with hwaddr 00:17:31:b4:26:40 and ssid 'wtf on WL500gp'
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not supported
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: Operation not supported
Could not set interface wlan1 flags: Operation not supported
Failed to initialize driver interface
enable_mac80211(radio0): Failed to set up wpa_supplicant for interface wlan1

i suspect, the /lib/wifi/ might be buggy, since my atheros wds-master accepts all additional configs without throwing any errors.

The b43 driver does not support multiple networks and it is not planned in the near future.
