You are most definitely welcome. I am glad that I can help in some way,
although the way I often fix problems is to mess up the computer... so I
find it very likely that you are right to be cautious, particularly in
the realm of sysctl.

Good Luck

Try searching google for giwscan, from what it looks like to me the

They are talking about a (sounds like) similar problem...
Maybe you can find a solution there.
Also sysctl may aid in the final solution or at least an interim one.

Thanks for helping out with the search Eric. I still haven't made
much progress on this one. There is very little info on this issue
that seems directly relevant. The computer will lock up - less often
- as long as that module is loaded, even if I'm not using the WiFi.
If I --force unload the moule then things are fine. It's definitely
something related to the WiFi driver. There are still zero hints in
the log files. I haven't played much with the sysctl side of things
yet for this problem.

I'm planning on installing a new/decond drive in this computer to do a
little moe in-depth experimenting with other configurations...
basically so I don't break my main install any more than I already
have. That will take 2 or 3 weeks until I can do that - in the
mean-time I'll just used the wired NIC.
