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.
