Alright - time to update. And I feel bad about this as you went to all the trouble to post these..
Option 1 - everything went smoothly, no errors, wl refuses to scan for a network and the device isn't showing. Appears the Os still can't see it.
Option 2 - make results in multiple error 1 and error 2 outputs, which google shows as common with this chipset.
Thanks for the thread DD, but i need to find better options. Back to google.
