Thanks for getting this driver going, I'm now using the version in 7.0,
Its working very well for me other than one (reasonably minor) thing,
which is that "ifconfig wpi0 scan" just sits there until I kill it. the
driver works in every other way, associates, works with WEP (havent
tried with WPA.) It will find and associate with a network if I just put
in "ifconfig wpi0 up" or if i use wpa_supplicant.
