Decided to try and test out even just WEP encryption, and had the same kernel trap.

Downloaded the 4.5 snapshot (I do like the installer better), attempted to configure WPA and got no kernel trap, just the entire system froze.

My command:

ifconfig ath0 nwid my_network wpaakms 'psk' wpaciphers 'tkip' wpapsk 'my_wpa_passphrase' mediaopt hostap

I had always thought that wireless options in ifconfig were only for connecting, not for host setup, and that another program configured the actual hosting part.

I'll probably try FreeBSD again on a spare HDD that I have, and hopefully resolve the problem with my internal NIC.

Thanks again for the advice.
