Description Ed Maste freebsd_committer 2020-05-02 15:28:47 UTC
attempting to use bsdinstall on an x220 reports "No wireless networks were found. Rescan?" after 5s scan delay + a few more seconds

from another vty running "wpa_cli scan; sleep 5; wpa_cli scan_results" shows:
Selected interface 'wlan0'
Selected interface 'wlan0'
'SCAN_RESULTS' command timed out.

It's not clear why ssid scan is failing, but in any case bsdinstall should report that there was an error, not just that no networks were found.

Reproducible on my X220 on 12.1-RELEASE and most recent 13 snapshot as of May 2 2020.
