I just acquired a Linksys "Instant Wireless Network PC Card" 802.11b
wireless NIC. When plugged into a 6.2 i386 laptop, dmesg reports:
wi0: <The Linksys Group, Inc. Instant Wireless Network PC Card> at port 0x100-0x13f irq 11 function 0 config 1 on pccard1
wi0: using RF:PRISM3(PCMCIA)
wi0: Intersil Firmware: Primary (1.1.0), Station (1.4.2)
wi0: Ethernet address: 00:06:25:18:6e:1d
When I attempted to connect to my WPA-PSK WAP, wpa_supplicant(8) just
hangs. When I turned off encryption on the WAP, and enter:
# dhclient wi0
Then the NIC connects just fine. So the question is, is it the NIC, the
wi(4) driver, or what?
