Ticket #6811 (closed defect: fixed)
WLAN doesn't reassociate with known access points
The expected behavior of an XO is that if it doesn't find a school mesh (or "laptop as MPP" mesh), it will try to associate with WiFi APs that it has previously been associated with.
In the 69x builds (particularly 699), this has not been working reliably (for example, see: http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Collab_Network_School_Wifi_Tests#Test_0323K )
But with build 703, I'm seeing that association with a previous selected access point tends to work, with occasional failures. Attached are logs taken from the same laptop. Once when it succeeded, and once when it fails.
In previous tests, I noticed a zero length /home/olpc/.sugar/default/nm/networks/cfg file, which could have contributed to the problem. That file was verified to have the correct information in these tests.
