Have you tried watching the wifi session in debug mode and see if it's
erroring somewhere? (i.e. their WiFi network doesn't like your laptop since
it's running *BSD, I know that my starbucks connection doesn't like my
laptop sometimes). It could also be that the WiFi network is scanning for
the WiFi client on the machine, and when it doesn't find it - it won't allow
it to log on.

Well sometimes I wish I had all the answers... I need some advice.
When I proudly bring my FreeBSD-5.x laptop(s) into Starbucks, I have my
"wi0" set for "DHCP" in /etc/rc.conf and I never have consistant
handshakes with the server, same coffee shop, same everything.
Sometimes I'm so pressed for time that I can't go through all the
"ifconfig wi0 ..." commands and I just have to reboot into
godammmmmmmmmmmed windows and it friggin works.....
FUCKING HUMILIATING..... (sorry for the adj.)
Does anyone have any supplimental arguments to /etc/rc.conf to get me
onto my account at Starbucks?
I firmly believe one cannot: "Save Face And Ass At Same Time" hence my
Thank You :)
