Hi,
     I can't connect to the network by using bwn0 NIC,as matter of the 
fact the drivers of bwn have been installed correctly because I can get 
NIC's information via ifconfig command.But pc-netmanager tool can't find 
bwn0 or wlan0 NIC,so I need help to make my wireless work,what should I 
do?,thanks!
