I played around with BIOS settings and have card working...partialy at
least.

So, it seems that my wireless card i properly detected by system, I wonder
why I cannot set it up with GUI. My m0n0 box web page reads:  Status:
Wireless
No supported wireless interfaces were found for status display.

Any ideas why and what to do with that?

Maybe *BSD community will have AP functionality for Lucent cards. Linux has
it, look for HermesAP.
Maybe it could be done by porting it from linux?
