OK, I got it working sort of. When I looked at the packets going
through the wifi interface I saw this.
15:57:20.388862 IP 0.0.0.0 > vex.net: ICMP echo request, id 12998, seq
16, length 64
I had assumed that the 0.0.0.0 was a place holder for whatever IP
address was on the interface as supplied by DHCP but then I saw this in
the output of ifconfig as well as the correct address.
inet 0.0.0.0/8 broadcast 255.255.255.255 flags 0x0
As soon as I did "ifconfig athn0 -0.0.0.0" the packets started flowing.
So now the question is, how did that address get installed on the
interface. It's great that I can make it work by running a simple
command but it would be nice if it came up properly in the first place.
