- ifconfig step (creation of pseudo device) completed successfully
- wpa_supplicant gives the following type of output (I can't paste it here, but I'll describe the structure of the output) :

1st message : Initialization successfull

Then the following blocks of messages (they alternate or repeat)
Block 1 :

Trying to associate with <mac address> (SSID='myssid' freq=5180 Mhz)
wlan0 : Authentication with <mac address> timed out.
wlan0 : CTRL_EVENT_DISCONNECTED bssid =<mac address> reason=3 locally_generated=1
ioctl[SIOCS80211, op=20, val=0, arg_len=7] : Can't assign requested adress

Block 2 :
Trying to associate with <mac address> (SSID='myssid' freq=2412 Mhz)
wlan0 : Associated with <mac address>
wlan0 : WPA: Key negotiation completed with <mac address> [PTK=CMP GTK=TKIP] wlan0 : CTRL_EVENT_CONNECTED - Connection to <mac address> completed [id=0 id_str=]

Block 2 is sometines followed by :
wlan0 : CTRL_EVENT_DISCONNECTED bssid =<mac address> reason=0
and then followed by block 1

For as far as I understand, the driver switches between the 2.4 GHz and 5 Ghz band of my wireless network. Indeed my wifi router is configured to support both bands but apparently my wifi driver can only handle the 2.4Ghz one.

Just try it manually -

* comment out stuff from /etc/rc.conf and reboot
* ifconfig wlan0 create wlandev wpi0 -bgscan
* wpa_supplicant -i wlan0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf &
* ifconfig wlan0 list scan - you haven't pasted that here, so we have
no idea what APs it is seeing

then see.

If you compiled in IEEE80211_DEBUG in your kernel config, then
'wlandebug +scan' and see what is spat out to the kernel config.
