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 > ICMP echo request, id 12998, seq
16, length 64

I had assumed that the 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 broadcast flags 0x0

As soon as I did "ifconfig athn0 -" 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.
