Default Wanted: More Documentation

I have read the man pages for ifconfig and my wireless card wpi in my case and have a decent understanding of their contents. This morning while at Panera Bread getting some coffee I attempted to connect to their network and was able to do but only after resetting my nic to its default setting (i.e., -wpa, -nwid, -nwkey, etc, etc) I re-read ifconfig and wpi and could find no mention of this being a necessity. It is probably common knowledge so I apologize for my ignorance.

Onto my question - is there recommended reading in order to gain a greater understanding of how networks and nic's work within OpenBSD.
