Hello everybody

I've just got my bwi0 working, on my old HP Pavilion ze2000 laptop
(i'm using a WPA-PSK key)

this is a broadcom BCM4318 too.

How I dit it :

1. installed the firmware like explained in the bwi manpage

2. created (as root) the file /etc/hostname.bwi0 for the interface to be started at boot :

the file contains the following line :

dhcp nwid <my_nwid> wpa wpapsk `wpa-psk <my_nwid> <my_wpa-psk-key>`
(for security, chmod 640 /etc/hostname.bwi0 )

reboot, and the interface should be brought up!
