I finally did get into it with 'wap11gui' after succeeding in getting it to 
build, after trying to do a reset that apparently failed, because it 
remembered everything but the wep keys I had stored it it, _or_ it defaults 
to showing them as "all balls".  Their printed out & hanging on the wall 
here anyway because the lappy has yet to remember that over a reboot.  
Paranoid POS that thing is.  It doesn't even trust itself at times. ;-)

So now I need to drag my lappy back out of the case & see if I can get it 
to connect.  It has a bcm4318 card in it, and ALL bets are off where that 
POS is concerned.

Thanks Bruce.

Cheers, Gene
