Hi folks,

I have just uploaded pb4r263 with a few changes to the wireless stuff:

- wireless BSS (infrastructure) and IBSS (ad-hoc) modes are now supported
  (in routed mode only, of course)

- Cisco Aironet cards are now supported (in BSS and IBSS mode) - too bad
  they don't do hostap...

- wireless interfaces are no longer put in promiscuous mode with hostap
  (it's not necessary and confuses some cards)

- a new wireless status page has been added to display the signal strength
  cache and the list of associated stations (in hostap mode) for cards
  supported by the wi(4) driver (not for Cisco Aironet)

- dual wireless cards should now work (pccard.conf fixed up)
