If you're running FreeBSD, NetBSD settings won't help you much.

Well, the appropriate output from dmesg would help.  It's possible
that it's an interrupt problem, but we haven't seen too many of them
lately.  If you're showing up as wi0 (presumably), then probably it's
not an interrupt issue.  Do you have the other settings set up
correctly?  ifconfig output and information about your wireless
infrastructure would help.
