Case Sensitivity: It's not just for passwords anymore

Me: Connect to SSID 'accesspoint' with 'this password'

FreeBSD: I don't see SSID 'accesspoint'

(disable encryption)

Me: Connect to SSID 'accesspoint' without a password

FreeBSD: I don't know what you're talking about

(connect with another computer)

Me: It's there, the Mac can see it

FreeBSD: I don't care if we're related, I'm not the Mac and I don't know what you're talking about

(verify the access point is in b/g mode)

Me: O'kay fine, connect to the first thing you see

FreeBSD: Connected to SSID 'Accesspoint'

(facepalm)

Me: I'm sorry, 'accesspoint' != 'Accesspoint'

FreeBSD: :P
