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 10.0.0.29 netmask 0xffffff00 \
ssid "myssid" \
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.
