If you have a laptop running with an iwi wireless card on FreeBSD 6, I’d suggest NOT upgrading your iwi-firmware port. I did last night and so now I’m stuck using using a cable!

Ever since the “upgrade” all I see is “unknown notification type 15” messages flooding my logs and connections that come and go whenever they feel like – when they chose to connect at all!

Given the driver and firmware had been working just fine until last night when the upgrade took place I’m not overly impressed. Given this coincides with my desktop being offline while it’s memory gets looked at, the timing couldn’t really be worse 🙁

UPDATE: upgraded to 6.1 and recompiled everything  iwi0 now works well and is slightly more stable than it’s prevous incarnation.
