Hi jimerickso,

I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to plan9, so you've run into
something I haven't seen yet.  Sorry I can't be of more help.  My
experience was that I couldn't get the system to recognise and
authenticate the wifi so it would connect to the network at boot.  I
modified my plan9.ini with

ether0=type=iwl essid=MYESSID debug=1

For some reason this failed to authenticate and connect my machine to
my localnet.

I could however run the following once my machine was up and the wifi worked.

bind -a '#l1' /net
echo 'key proto=wpapsk essid=MYESSID !password=WPAPASSWORD' >> /mnt/factotum/ctl
aux/wpa -2p -s MYESSID /net/ether1
ip/ipconfig ether /net/ether1

At any rate we should probably move this to the 9front email list if
we need to discuss it further.

Best regards,
