Machine? Kernel version?
T40/linux-2.6.0-test8-mm1: Cisco is eth1, internal 10/100 is eth0.
I haven't had to mess with bcard at all, and iwconfig/dhclient seem to
work fine. I have my drivers compiled into the kernel as well, and was
having problems till I figured out I had an extra entry in
/etc/modules.conf referencing the airo_mpi driver.
