Yes, my experience is also that WPA2 is more reliable. However, don't
forget that 8.2.1 introduces another regression which I can reproduce
every time where the WPA2 (and WPA) connection is not automatically
reestablished on reboot - association and WPA2 handshake succeeds, but
the system receives no response during DHCP. (have not tested if the
problem is in TX or RX path)

This was also observed by Hal Murray and I can reproduce it on every boot.
