18 With wpa_supplicant the script is run 2 times. Once by you which fires
19 up wpa_supplicant and once by, which puts up the interface
20 and runs dhcpcd.
21 I had this problem once too, and my problem was that a file
22 /etc/conf.d/net.eth1 existed, which had config_eth1=("null") in it. The
23 statements in /etc/conf.d/net had no effect then. Maybe that's the same
24 issue here.
