With iwlist scan, this would indicate that it didn't find any stations.
According to the output in your previous mail, they appear to be very
weak, so it may well happen that they sometimes disappear completely.

They're also on the same channel, which isn't helping. If you can
reconfigure one of them, better put it on channel 1 or >= 11. See also

If it declares complete defeat already after 2 seconds, that could
also explain some problems, yes. Maybe this is just the final straw it
takes in an already difficult network situation.

But it seems that the principal problem are the weak signals.
