i installed cisco aironet 802.11a/b/g wirless adapter on 6.3 and have some issues. basically it works like charm with wpa2/dhcp, but it doesn't work with wpa2/static ip address.

here is my working configuration for rc.conf

ifconfig_ath0="ssid home WPA DCHP"

everything works: authentication, dhcp process, ip address binding to the interface.

but any time i change to:

ifconfig_ath0="ssid home WPA inet netmask"

everything else works except the binding of the static ip address to the interface.

did i do any wrong?

thanks in advance.
