Hey Scott,

I rebuilt the laptop (using the same disks)and it worked this time.
The only issue I see is that the ifconfig part does not list my router as
connected there is just a pair of "" there and not my ssid
When it boots the link comes up, dhclient starts then the link goes down and
the dhclient runs 3 times then the link comes back up

So in effect it is working

Do you have an entry similar to this in your dmesg?

ndis0: <Broadcom 802.11b/g WLAN> mem 0xc0204000-0xc0205fff irq 21 at
device 2.0 on pci6
