Just to remember that, besides "project evil" there exists a native

By the way the same author has a native driver for some USB DSL modems
which can be of interest at least for european users:
I have personnally used this driver under FreeBSD-5, it works OK.

The ipw driver relies on the net80211 framework from FreeBSD-5, which has not been committed... so this doesn't work yet. I believe it's on Joerg's list. He's got patches to bring it in at ftp://dragonflybsd.dyndns.org/patches/unapplied/.

(I haven't gotten around to patching mine yet though, but he say's it's working, asides from BPF support (and thus DHCP).)

(Also, it's nice to see someone else with a T40... if you find a way around the suspend crash please let me know :)
