I have built a NetBSD box with Sascha's Lucent PCI->CardBus bridge and
one of Peter's Lucent PC Cards. My idea is to put this in the front
room at OJC and serve the 100 block of Main Street, including the Cinema

Trouble is that NetBSD's wi driver will not enable 802.11b-standard
adhoc mode, but only Lucent's "adhoc demo mode." Adhoc demo mode is not
appropriate for our purposes.

Saturday afternoon, Peter and I are going to fix the wi driver. We
will compare with the analogous driver for Linux to figure out how wi
is broken.
