I went back to 1.6.2 and it works fine.  I assume nobody else is having =
trouble, so I must have screwed up.

<<< "Ian Harding" <>  5/20  7:10a >>>
I just dusted off my laptop (NetBSD 1.6.1) and popped in a new wireless =
NIC.  It worked great.

I upgraded to 2.0 sources from the 200405100000 directory at releng.netbsd.=

Now my NIC doesn't work.

It is discovered by the GENERIC kernel just fine, and the AP shows the MAC =
address and signal strength, but there is no getting them to talk to each =
other.  The AP is a soekris box with an identical NIC in hostap mode.

Has there been a change between 1.6.1 and 2.0 that I have not taken into =
account?  From what I have read it should Just Work without any special =
configuration, like it did before.

Thanks in advance!
