I've been running a 110CS (P110) for ages and using various cards including
this Xircom Netwave wireless thing.

Then I got a different laptop, a Hyperdata somethingorother with a P233. After
installing a fresh NetBSD on it, 1.4Z to be precise, and getting everything
back into place, I discovered that I couldn't use my 'cnw0' anymore. It 
would ifconfig but I couldn't get a packet through it.  I discovered the
problem was that it wasn't getting interrupts as well...

So on a lark, I tried the above this morning and lo-behold, it works now
(albeit with 37% packet loss but I think that's due to RF conditions).
