I have troubles with iwi0, even now that I updated yo the current kernel.

I run the following

ifconfig bge0 down
route delete default
ifconfig iwi0 ssid xxxxxxxx
ifconfig iwi0 nwkey 0xYYYYYYYYY
dhclient iwi0

dhclient is capable of receiving a correct IP, the default route
seem scorrect but the interface remains "down" and trying to ping
both a LAN or an internet hosts says "network is down".
When you say that the interface remains down, what do you mean? dhclient
should bring it up before it does anything else.  Send some ifconfig
output, please.

After running the above script, "ifconfig iwi0" says:
        ssid xxxxxxxx nwkey 0xXXXXXXXX
        powersave off

which looks reasomable too, the default is correct.

grid$ ping
ping: Cannot resolve "" (Host name lookup failure)
grid$ ping
PING ( 52 data bytes
ping: sendto: Network is down
ping: sendto: Network is down

As said, the absurd is that on another network, same essid/key, same script... it works!
