I would be running it on 11a, but 11a doesn't seem to be working with
6.0-STABLE.  I have followed -CURRENT with my laptop in the past, but  I
havn't yet decided to with 7.0

One other issue I'm seeing, though, is that the iwi0 in my laptop which is :

iwi0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 2915ABG> mem 0xdcfef000-0xdcfeffff irq 17 at
device 3.0 on pci3

... is that the adaptor looses association with the access point and never
regains it unless I down and up it...
