Subject: Re: [PATCH V2] bcm43xx: Fix failure to deliver PCI-E interrupts

Results so far....
In a word Wow. It still doesn't work but I suspect that is could just
be my configuration. Power levels are not being reported correctly all
the time iwlist works but nothing else to my knowledge. I remember
there being talk of power level reporting patches. Is there anything I
can try adding. For the first time in a long time it does associate
with AP's but I can't dhcpcd eth1. I am using an access point next
door. Mine is down. I will test it with a good one at school on
Tuesday.

####To recap I am on...
MFG: Compaq V3000 (V3019US)
CPU: AMD Turion 64 x2
Kernel: linux-2.6.18-gentoo-r2
	I have SMP on and I am in 64 bit.
BCM Chip: BCM4311
BCM FW: V3 Sorry I don't recall exactly what version

####Patches used
patch_2.6.18.1_fix_leds
patch_2.6.18.1_for_PCI-E
radio_hwenable_for_2.6.18

####The following work
ifconfig eth1 up
iwconfig eth1 essid NAME channel #
kismet -c bcm43xx,eth1,bcm43xx
iwlist eth1 scan	<-the power levels are reported here

####The following don't work
iwconfig		<-the power levels are reported as always being 0
kismet			<-no power levels are reported
LED			<-always off (I have a slider switch on the front to turn radio on/off)
dhcpcd eth1		<-low transmit power???

#####The following don't work but might be my fault (I will get back
to you later on these)
dhcpcd eth1
