I'm using a wavelan card with FreeBSD-4.1.1-STABLE right now (just
outside the terminal room at BSDcon). To make it work, I have put the
following in /etc/pccard.conf

	# Special settings for WaveLAN card
	# -p 1 == BSS mode (instead of default 3 which is ad-hoc)
	# -P 1 == enable power management (doesn't work with ad-hoc)
	card "Lucent Technologies" "WaveLAN/IEEE"
		config	0x1 "wi" ?
		insert	/usr/sbin/wicontrol -i $device -p 1
		insert	/usr/sbin/wicontrol -i $device -P 1
		insert	/etc/pccard_ether $device
		remove	/sbin/ifconfig $device delete

You probably won't need to configure dhclient.
