hmm, I am using the same kernel/shr-u combination, but with fso-abyss :)
cant get gsm with 2.6.29 :(

wifi works well for, even stopping wpa at home and reassociating to a
wep AP at work.  The script below is called using fsoraw to turn on/off
the wifi power control first.


killall -9 wpa_supplicant udhcpc
sleep 1
rm /var/run/wpa_supplicant/eth0

echo "wifi starting!"
/usr/sbin/wpa_supplicant -B -t -i eth0 -Dwext
-c /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf 
sleep 5
ifup eth0
route del default gw
ifdown eth0
killall -9 wpa_supplicant udhcpc
echo "WiFi off"
