Yeah I had similar troubles on a laptop with an intel wifi (6.1 + 6.2). I posted something about a week or two back, but I didn't get any response here. Not sure where to go from here though, as I'm having similar troubles with the ral driver too (desktop- 6.3). Seems to be wpa supplicant from my troubleshooting. If I manually reassociated with the iwi it was ok, but didn't hold out- I was going to setup a script to run a check and do this. The ral driver works if I set it auto, but wpa supplicant will only work in manual mode. Catch 22 on that one... _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
