I too have had issues getting WiFi to work. I've recently posted a bug in the bugtracker. I would encourage others who have bugs/issues to enter them into the Bug Tracking system. It is likely the ONLY way that things will get fixed.
The card I am using (Linksys WCF-11) works beautifully under OZ, but not under Angstrom. Some of the same problems with Orinoco drivers getting in the way. Unfortunately I've not been able to work around the issues - but I keep trying.
Thanks for the technique, it didn't resolve my issues, but it seems to work for others.
