The configuration tool caused my laptop (IBM Thinkpad 600x (2645-5EU)) to
become completely unresponsive. I entered Administration Mode, Selected
ndis0 (Linksys WPC11 v4), Configured ndis0 for ssid, security. I applied the
System-wide configuration settings. DNS1, DNS2, Hostname, and Gateway. I
then clicked Apply and the "Restarting Network" dialog box appears with the
message "Restarting the Network... Please Wait...", at this time the laptop
becomes totally unresponsive, cannot move cursor or kill X server. PCBSD v.
1.3.3
