iwconfig fails with space in essid
Just wondering if others have run into this issue ...
I'm running CentOS 4.6 on a ThinkPad T42 w/ Atheros wireless device.
Madwifi driver works very well, but when I attempt to configure a connection for an AP that has a space in the essid, iwconfig only uses the first word -- even though both are surrounded by double quotes -- and therefore association fails.
This occurs always, if I'm attempting the configuration on the command line or via a script (tried a variety of methods to escape/quote the space, to no avail).
Kernel is 2.6.9-67.0.[15|20|22] & madwifi driver v 0.9.3.3/0.9.4 ... any combination ... makes no difference. Wireless-tools are from installation of wireless-tools-28-0.pre16.3.3.EL4.rpm.
Any thoughts regarding possible resolution would be most welcome.
