I do this with a Win98 system, and IIRC the windows driver needs to be
set to "base station" connection type, while NetBSD is in adhoc mode.
You can use wiconfig -s to set a station name, which the lucent diagnostic
sofware will display. Don't forget to use the same network ID (ifconfig nwid)
on both sides.
