If you use ipw please try a new version at:
This code should work with wpa_supplicant, recognize beacon miss (i.e.
roam), implement the rfkill radio switch, etc. It should work on both
HEAD and RELENG_6.
There are still some rough edges as the ipw firmware has some quirks but
I believe it's an improvement over what's in the tree. Beware of bugs;
it's only been lightly tested.
Note that you'll need the ipw firmware packaged as modules. This is the
way things are in HEAD but not RELENG_6. The ipw-firmware-kmod port
currently won't allow installation on a RELENG_6 system; you'll need to
defeat the check in the Makefile to install the necessary firmware.
If you hit issues please try to collect a debug log by setting
(or higher if needed); msgs go to the console.
