Sorry, still haven't woken up today...

As a side note, if anyone tries to sell you a HP ProCurve WESMzl 
(Wireless Edge Service Module), pick up the nearest object of sufficient 
mass and beat them round the head with it. These things are pure evil, 
better than the AP530, but still evil.

A whole weekend wasted reading through the ~200 page manual and i'm 
still no closer in getting the damn thing to function in a stable and 
satisfactory manner. At random intervals for absolutely no apparent 
reason, it will kick you out of it's management interface, or it's JAVA 
based web interface will freeze up completely waiting for an SNMP response.
Just now it claimed it couldn't save the configuration... and yep it's 
erased the startup-config... well that's just great.
