Please ignore the memory unaligned issues, the driver will reattempt the 
allocation upon a failure. It's a temporary work around until I can 
convince uma to reliably give me a 16k aligned page (or fix it in 
another way). The driver will fail to load if after multiple attempts it 
still can't get an aligned page.

You are correct, the 3945 chipset provides both bluetooth and 802.11abg 
As for your failed dhcp attempts I'll work with you off list to fix these.
