That might be a potential problem, my cvsup hangs as well. I have
setup dhcp via wireless (ipw driver) for thinkpad. how do you change
the name server? and is there anything i need to change in my dhcp

My ping on freebsd responds faster than the ping on windows xp, so i
think the basic network is working. And i was running dhcp on XP via
wireless as well, and it didn't seem to have any problems....
