So, I'm trying out the newly-committed raylink driver on a pair of

these working in a FreeBSD-to-FreeBSD configuration?
Certainly, this is how I tested on 3.x, 4.1 and -current! Attached are raycontrol files from my machines at home.
I note that your raycontrol dump shows that the hopset is 0x03 and not 0x1d. Did you change it? I'm not sure that the hopset code selection actually works well on rev4 cards (conflicting information in docs etc.)
I have two systems, running a recent (post-commit) -current. The cards are properly recognized by pccardd and the raycontrol program sees the settings and makes reasonable modifications. It actually looks like the two cards just plain aren't seeing each other. The 'BSS Id' values are never the same on the two systems, even those I've set the SSID to the same thing repeatedly. As nearly as I can tell from reading a little about 802.11, the BSS Id is supposed to be the same. Also, both cards always have a 0x01 for 'Current INITED'.
Hmm, this means that the cards aren't seeing each other at all. The seperated BSSIDs and INITED flag, mean that the cards have set up seperate networks.
Things to try - plug one card in and wait a couple of minutes before plugging in the next check the hopsets
I don't think that the W98 will change anything on the cards in a permanant fashion.
Oh, and I've also tried varying the location - one of the systems is sitting on a monitor arm (it's my old laptop) about 6 feet above floor level. The other has been sitting almost directly underneath it, but I've varied the location from nearby to 20 ft away with no luck.
Try moving them away from the monitor - the scan coils may be interfering with the radio.
