Hi, all,

Years ago I set up a Lucent Wavelan wireless card in access point mode on 
NetBSD. It worked fine. Now, I have the same exact wireless card on a 
NetBSD 4 system, but neither the documentation nor Google nor the mailing 
lists can help me figure out how to configure my card in AP mode.

ifconfig wi0 mediaopt hostap doesn't work. wiconfig is missing many 
options. Every example I can find on the internet uses "hostap".

Does anyone have a clue they'd be willing to share?
