Re: mixw to wisp



So the question remaining is, what does WiSP require from a hardware port
that is not being emulated in the emulated loopback?  Obviously the RXD bits
are there in both cases.  I had one suggestion that WiSP needed to see DSR
be set on which it appears that MixW is doing.  If we could pin down exactly
what the interface issue is I suspect it would not be too hard to fix.
