Uhm... is there any special reason you decided to try changing the
MAC address? Did you ever see a message on the console that said
"ndis0: link up" before you tried to run dhclient? Can you show me
the PRECISE set of commands you issues that led to the panic?

Are you _absolutely_, _positively_ sure you have all of your kernel sources
and modules in sync? Are you _absolutely_, _positively_ sure you recompiled
both src/sys/compat/ndis and src/sys/dev/if_ndis after I tweaked them a
little while ago?
