I'm having problems connecting to an orange livebox using WPA2-PSK (AES) and I wonder if a more recent version of wpa_supplicant is required.

Would it be possible to update this extension to the latest stable - wpa_supplicant-0.6.9 - or upload the .config used to build this version?

It looks like the extension maker used upstream defconfig (see tce/src/wpa_supplicant/compile-wpasupplicant)

Hmm, on the risk of speaking a bit "out of my depth" but I'd like to suggest to keep a "frugal" version of wpa_supplicant (and if required create another extension for any "richer" clients).

I'm a bit a stickler for minimal extensions and I'm quite happy that it just needs a small set of extensions, a tiny config file and two commands to get my Wi-Fi to work. Anything more is just some "fluffy sugar-coating" to me. Albeit I have to admit that I've used 'wicd' once or twice to understand a bit better how things are working together. In the interest of "Tiny" (and "Micro") in Core I'd like to plead to keep on supporting minimal options.
