If I run dhclient wi0 the lights on the card go out, dhclient reports failure, and usually locks and reboots the machine.
I am not sure what information you need, but here is what I have and what I have learned so far. I will gladly collect and post any info that may help. PCMCIA NIC card is a 3com airconnect, came with the access point. Laptop is an IBM ThinkPad 380xd (machine was free, rescued from trash at work to be a FreeBSD project) It is always plugged in when in use because the battery has about 5-10 minutes of life. Installed FreeBSD 6.1. dmesg shows that the wireless card is found and looks like it configures ok. If I enter IP & gateway manually it works. Tried using the other card slot, same problem. Tried to start pccardd per the web site, command not found. I found a post that says to run OLDCARD on this machine, but that's not in 6.1 and the card is fine until dhclient tries to help. It's a project and has no significant documents (I think), so wiping it and going to a version with OLDCARD can be done if necessary. After I get this working I may tackle APM so the thing will shut off when I tell it to.
