> Yeah I don't know what to suggest. That error means it's flat out not finding anything in the USB tree that matches the wispy. That's a step backwards from when it wasn't blacklisted, since you said then it found it but failed to initialize it because it was in use/claimed, right?
> Blacklisting must have some other implication here on openbsd; I don't have any open systems so I don't know what else to suggest. I know on other BSDs it required a kernel patch to make it work, and ultimately to properly implement disconnection so the device could be disconnected realtime from the kernel driver instead of with source mods.

Your previous statement is not quite true. Whether I conduct the "blacklisting" or not, I still receive the same readings/response from usbdev in that the os recognizes the Metageek device but the spectools application acts as if the device is no where to be found. Are there any flags, initialization switches that I can attempt to tweak with in spectools while I attempt to load the app? Thanks again for you help.
