    1 Backtracked. Tested wifi on Haiku R1a4.1 (hrev44702) - I have pseudo IP/gateway info but wpa_supplicant wouldn't initialize properly (errored out) to join network and no wifi networks detected during scan. Can see iprowifi3945 in Network Preferences and get a network menu GUI to select adapters and select DHCP/static or disable modes. Wifi adapter doesn't properly initialize during boot which is needed to work before any user interaction or wireless network detection scan/join.

    3 The original 'no rate table for channel' error happens from Haiku R1a4.1 hrev44702 to hrev52044 for my laptop - confirming #13364.

    5 The current issue on hrev52044 - hrev52058 is related to a previous issue with the iprowifi4965 driver (#8623) also failing on Haiku R1a4.1. Since this driver is currently working with the newer nightly revisions (hrev52045 and higher), there might be something in the iprowifi4965 driver (or firmware) that was fixed versus iprowifi3945. Worth a shot to review/discuss further.
     5The original 'no rate table for channel' error happens from Haiku R1a2 hrev36769 to hrev52044 for my laptop - confirming #13364. So, this issue was always there and probably triggered by specific laptop model configurations (if not seen on others).
