I tried that:

    genius# ifconfig iwi0 up
    genius# ifconfig iwi0
    iwi0: flags=3D8802<BROADCAST,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
	    inet6 fe80::20e:35ff:fe38:1e14%iwi0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x2
	    ether 00:0e:35:38:1e:14
	    media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect
	    status: no carrier
	    ssid tao 1:tao
	    channel -1 authmode OPEN powersavemode OFF powersavesleep 100
	    rtsthreshold 2312 protmode CTS txpower 100

Doesn't make any difference.
