Description

Our AA related code assumes device pairs named wlanN/mshN.

On a machine with PCI wireless cards, the PCI device will take precedence and take the wlan0 name, so when the Libertas device comes up, it appears as wlan1/msh0. Our scripts ignore this and try to drive wlan0 as if it were the pair of msh0 -- the wlan0 driver gets confused/locked and all bets are off.

There is an easy solition for this: change our dev naming convention away from wlanX and leave wlanX for other autoconfigured wireless devices.

COMMENT: I had a similar problem on my XO when using an USB-ethernet adapter for a wired connection. My bypass was to manually edit /etc/udev/rules.d/70-persistent-net.rules such that the ethernet adapter was specified to use 'eth1', and the radio wifi was specified to use 'eth0' (corresponding to the radio mesh using 'msh0').
