ok, then as promised something to make it easier

attached you will find a tar file
a) copy it to iliad
b) expand it (anywhere is ok e.g. /mnt/free/programs)
with tar xvf wpatch.tar

c) you will then find 3 scripts:

i) installpatch.sh - installs a wireless.sh with 15 retries
ii) installorig.sh - installs a copy of the original file
iii) installdebug.sh - installs a copy with debug info in it

the final one, will produce a file in /tmp called wireless.txt
this contains quite a bit of useful info for tracking problems down

note: if wireless.txt will contain your ssid, mac address and wlan password, so if you are worried about such things, think twice before posting it


d) try connecting in your 'normal' way, and the new script will be used


hope this helps someone, post if any issues


edit: for those not comfortable with shell access on iliad, ive included a zip version, unzip this on pc, transfer to iliad in your 'normal way' (e.g. via CF)
the debug version will write its file to /mnt/free/wireless.txt , which you should be able to then move back to PC.
