I'm sure that this is just a symptom of some deeper problem, but it's
really, really weird and I am totally at a loss as to how to
Fresh world+kernel as of May 30. No WITNESS or INVARIANTS, but I can
put them back in upon request.
When I start xmms to listen to live365.com, it runs fine for 4-5
seconds. Music starts playing, then my wi0 wireless link loses its
wi0: flags=8843<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
inet 192.168.1.200 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
inet6 fe80::20a:e9ff:fe00:3301%wi0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4
media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (DS/2Mbps)

stationname "FreeBSD WaveLAN/IEEE node"
channel 4 authmode OPEN powersavemode OFF powersavesleep 100
rtsthreshold 2312 protmode CTS
wepmode MIXED weptxkey 1
/var/log/messages gives me the following:
Jun 3 08:21:28 ratbastard kernel: wi0: device timeout
There's nothing else of interest on the console.
If I kill xmms, and then ifconfig down && ifconfig up the card, the
wireless network returns as if nothing happened.
I am at a total loss on how to debug this. Any suggestions?
