Today I've booted the 5.2-R live filesystem and checked my wi card again.
On 5.2R the hostap mode of this card is working flawlessly, but tcpdump wi0
doesn't see any packets going trough the interface. I can connect from my
notebook both with Win98 (Boingo) and 5.2.1-RELEASE-p9 with the same
On 6.0-BETA5 from yesterday Boingo can't connect, FreeBSD on the Notebook
Unfortunately I can't check vis versa, the ap on the notebook, since
my Orinocco Gold PCCard seems to not support hostap mode on 5.1.1-R-p9.
If I can help to track this, drop me a mail..
