Thank you very much for the above info David, I've always been
challenged with my (encrypted) wireless card though, and usually have
my own manual script that I run.  Always wanted to have it start
"automagically" when/if it is the card I'm using.

(question)

Besides the single line you have in /etc/rc.conf above to instruct DHCP
to be used, can one place all the following somehow in rc.conf or will
I have to get this going in a script location?

Currently I give my card a static ip but would like to have it grab
it's ipaddr by DHCP, here is the majority of the script, omitted are my
ping tests of the gateway at the end.

TIA
