Gang, I'm attempting to work with a wireless NIC in busybox and before I 
started to dive into the wireless tools for Linux (e.g. iwconfig), I 
noticed that my USB wireless NIC isn't being shown in the ifconfig 
output.  I wasn't expecting it to have an IP address or any 
configuration settings, but I would have thought that it would have been 
picked up and displayed just as the integrated wired NIC has been.  I'm 
assuming it's not getting a driver loaded.  I know it works because I 
can use it in Kubuntu.  Does anyone know or can they point me in the 
direction of at least getting this device to show up in the ifconfig output?
