Avaya Wireless Networking Problems

I am a Linux user trying Freebsd.  I've installed 5.1 on two machines, one of 
shich is connected to a wireless network through a TI pci cardbus adapator 
and an Avaya Silver Wireless Network Card.  The card is recognised, the 
configuration settings appear to be correct but ifconfig -a shows that there 
is "no carrier".  I suspect that the problem may be interrupt-related, so the 
next thing I will try is to check the interrupt settings in Linux and force 
the same in NetBSD (I don't know how to achieve this yet but imagine it will 
be in the documentation somewhere).

What I would apprciate is some advice as to best method to troubleshoot this 
problem and correct it.

I must add that I like what I see of FreeBSD so far.  Installation was 
painless and I like the Ports system.  I don't know if I will like it so much 
that I replace my Debian unstable, but time will tell.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
