I've been using my LifeBooks internal prism2 card to connect
to my wi-fi LAN under current with no problems:

0rasputin@dozer:rasputin$ dmesg|grep wi0
wi0 at pci1 dev 13 function 0: Intersil Prism2.5 Wireless Lan
wi0: interrupting at irq 11
wi0: 802.11 address 00:e0:00:d1:11:b6
wi0: using RF:PRISM2.5 MAC:ISL3874A(Mini-PCI)
wi0: Intersil Firmware: Primary (1.1.0), Station (1.4.1)
wi0: 11b rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps

this has suddenly stopped responding on this kernel:

0rasputin@dozer:rasputin$ uname -a
NetBSD dozer 1.6ZF NetBSD 1.6ZF (GENERIC) #5: Monday November 24 22:24:59 GMT 2003  rasputin@dozer:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC i386

I get 'wi0: device timeout' errors when I try to use the card.

I had problems with this on 1.5.3 as well, but its been OK under current  -i expect the
last good kernel was about September.

Has anyone else seen a problem?

Cleanliness is next to impossible.
