Default Wireless Network Config working -- almost


I set up my wireless for my laptop. And it works -- almost. I can connect and all, but the problem I'm having is that one of the configuration seems to be causing a boot up error. When i boot up in that network, and it goes to initialize the interfaces, I get a fatal firmware error. I can then restart the network after I log in and it works just fine.

I'm running NetBSD 4.0.1 with kernel 5.99.01. The wireless card is Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG. I'm using the wpi0 driver and wpa_supplicant version 0.4.9.

Here is the rc.conf section:

wpa_supplicant_flags="-B -i wpi0 -c /etc/wpa_supplicant.conf"
critical_filesystems_local="/var /usr"
The above order was straight from the NetBSD community wiki pages.

Here is the section for the secure network that is giving me issues:


        ssid="blank for security"
        identity="blank for security"
        password="blank for security"

I am able to log into the network, it's just that since it gives me that fatal firmware error on boot up, I have to restart the network and the dhclient manually - it doesn't give me such errors when I'm in my home network.
And the WORD was made flesh, and dwelt among us. (John 1:14)
