Woohoo!  Great screen-shot :)

> Wireless support

I think, based on the lack of responses here, that this may be  
something nobody else happens to be dealing with- but I for one am  
curious about...

In a recent interview with Scott Long some places online, ( http:// 
bsdnews.com/view_story.php3?story_id=5137 ) he was talking about the  
Wireless Support being solidified in the 6.0 branch of FreeBSD, which  
in a nutshell I'd think means it's all kindof beta for now... (it  
ain't stable till it's STABLE)

I'd subscribe to the appropriate FreeBSD mailing list and ask there,  
you may simply have a relevant bug on your hands.  (I'm just not  
certain which list to subscribe to):
