Hi Dan,

I do have the broadcom chip in my spankin' new Ferarri 4000 (sweet laptop
BTW).  I didn't have much luck with the bcm43xx driver do I've been using
ndiswrapper for now.

Using wpa_supplicant standalone works fine for me.  The latest I have from NM
is that after connecting everything seems fine for a short while.  Say 30
seconds to a minute or so.  Then I can't send any more packets even though it
seems like I'm still completly connected.  The only external symptom I've been
able to note is the steep climb in the count of "Invalid misc" as reported by
iwconfig that I reported.

Thanks for replying.
