My gold and silver card both work with 4.8.  And with my WAP which 
does not broadcast the SSID.  I have this:

$ cat /etc/start_if.wi0
ifconfig wi0 inet netmask 0xffffff00 \
   ssid "myssid" \
        channel MYCHANNEL

change myssid to your ssid, and MYCHANNEL to the channel you are 
using.  You might also want to add wepmode and wepkey.  But get the 
basics going first.
