Hello all. I did a smallish upgrade today. My recollection is that it included udev. At any rate, upon reboot, I got the following message:
Error for wireless request "Set Encode"
SET failed on device wlan ; Operation not supported.
I was able to manually start my wireless network. I should note that I'm using ipw2100 and I start my network out of rc.conf. I also have a udev rule that binds my wireless connection to the name wlan.
Here's a snippet from dmesg that might be material:
ieee80211_crypt: registered algorithm 'WEP'
ieee80211_crypt_wep: could not allocate crypto API arc4
wlan: could not initialize WEP: load module ieee80211_crypt_wep
Has anyone else seen this and know what might be the cause. I'd appreciate any help.
Followup--I may have posted hastily. After a couple of reboots, the network started up fine. It looks like I was dealing with a temporary tear in the cosmic fabric.
