    Hi,

    I'm having some problems with wi in 5-CURRENT and 5.1 in general.

    I'm using a Proxim Skyline 802.11b PC Card (which I believe uses the
    Prism 2 chipset). The PC Card is using the 0.3.0 primary and 0.8.3
    secondary firmware (which I believe is the latest). I have a Dell
    Inspiron 8200.

    The card works fine in Windows XP and FreeBSD 5.0, but in 5.1 if I use
    ifconfig to bring up the card (for example during boot) it locks my
    laptop up for about a minute while I get loads of error messages appear
    on screen. Eventually I get a 'init failed' and 'tx buffer allocation
    failed (error 12)' error, and although ifconfig says the interface is up
    it doesn't actually work.

    I'm using 128bit wep in case that's relevant.

    I would really appreciate some help as I've spent hours (like about 20)
    now sitting here recompiling the kernel, updating to the current branch
    and trying that, etc...

    Please help!
