Is the wpa_supplicant starting and accessing the files it needs okay?
As I was trying to debug wifi support in Android, I followed these
- ensure the libertas driver is getting loaded into the kernel and
that it recognizes the wifi module (i.e. good stuff showed up in
- enable wpa-supplicant (required anyway) and use the wpa_cli tool to
test that the wifi module responds to wpa_supplicant commands
- try to get the android GUI working with wifi (lots of android message logs)
