Just a quick heads-up that NetBSD-current can now access WPA-encrypted
wireless LANS, assuming a capable WLAN card (e.g. iwi(4) or ath(4)).
The following instructions should get you online using a pre-shared
passphrase with most recent access points (assumes you are using an
iwi(4) WLAN card):
Add the following to your /etc/ifconfig.iwi0:
!/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -B -i iwi0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf
Create and populate /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf:
That's all there is to it. There are many more options available, but
the above should at least get you rolling.
