Nice... Shouldn't it use also "wmiconfig -i eth0 --setreassocmode 0" to
allow scanning and connecting again?
BTW the 2.6.28 kernel should have also another way to disable the wlan
by using a /sys node (if I don't remember wrong, it should do something
like a "rmmod wifi-module", "insmod wifi-module").
