   I won't have the opportunity to try it in the next few days i'm
   afraid. I'll let you know.

   Beyond that, i see a big problem arising: it seems that Vodafone hot

   work in the pipe to have xsupplicant work, but whether of not it will
   permit to use eap-sim I have no idea. But this is another story ...

   Sure, here it is:

   none3 at pci3:0:0: class=0x028000 card=0x000218de chip=0x432014e4
rev=0x03 hdr=0x00
    vendor   = 'Broadcom Corporation'
    device   = 'BCM4306(??) 802.11g Wireless NIC'
    class    = network
sio4 at pci3:0:1:  class=0x070002 card=0x000218de chip=0x432214e4 rev=0x03
    vendor   = 'Broadcom Corporation'
    class    = simple comms
