I'm not sure wether syntax has changed but I wanted to cretae an wlan 
acess point
and tried various things. Under 7.0 I got it working with the following 
command

ifconfig rum0 inet 10.0.0.1/24 mediaopt hostap ssid CITYOFFICE  wepmode 
on wepkey 0xf00baf00ba weptxkey 1 channel 1


I tried this but got a socket error "Invalid argument".

Then I tried (from an example in the rum (4) manpage):ifconfig wlan 
create wlandev rum0 10.0.0.1/24 mediaopt hostap CITYOFFICE wepmode on 
wepkey 0xf00baaf00baa  weptxkey 1 channel 1

and got:


wlan0
ifconfig: SIOCSIFMEDIA (media): Device not configured

But suddenly the wlan0 device is there.

Can anybody fill me in?
