Verdex && Belkin 802.11

With a lot of grunting and groaning, a good amount of grepping through forum posts, and gallons of patience (coffee), I have finally got my verdex board to acknowledge my Belkin F5D7050 and bring the interface up. Due to a small bug in the zd1211rw drivers, the device needs to be brought up before an ESSID can be assigned to it. Without doing so, I would receive a permission denied error for a majority of the iwconfig options:

For me, the hack I used to fix it was:

I put these files in a shell script, and firing it off brings my interface up without problems.

EDIT: After rereading the discussion threads, I discovered that this is a bug in the softmac implementation, not zd1211rw.
