I know everyone's busy with the release. =A0This is not a showstopper,
but it relates to networking, which is pretty central to a working bsd

I read in some obscure post that I can't bridge from a wlan to tap
because the wlan can only handle one MAC? =A0Kindof thought every card
has only one mac. =A0No idea if this related to 6.x or something
earlier, or current...of course I can't find the post again, either,
but it was just a mention in some other howto.

Anyway, I can't get an address on bridge0.


autobridge_interfaces=3D"bridge0" # autoconfigure these bridges
autobridge_bridge0=3D"tap* wlan0"

After I boot, no address on bridge0, and dhclient bridge0 just times
out...sortof thought I was following the handbook & man tap, but
again, I have a 7.2 box on a wired network that this basic operation
works on, so I'm suspecting wlan does break bridging...
