There are two I could test: athn and rsu, but neither fits iwn or bwi, and athn
is not in FreeBSD src at all.
athn is in NetBSD-current and 7.0_BETA, sometimes is able to connect, but
usually I get
athn0: could not load firmware (35)
Always fails with OpenBSD on USB stick (liveusb-openbsd.sourceforge.net), also
fails with kernels from OpenBSD 5.5, 5.6 and 5.7 as does Ethernet (re); no
success with rsu either in OpenBSD.
I see on the website that sys/dev/re was tested.
I notice, since the most recent change (2015-04-09) in sys/dev/re, that this
Ethernet now works for me on new computer where it didn't before:
MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard.
Also, the latest fix (2015-01-05) to sys/dev/usb/wlan/if_rsu.c seems to make
Hiro H50191 USB WLAN adapter work again.
This success is on current amd64 and i386; no such success on FreeBSD
But my installed ports date to last July 26; I installed lang/gcc-aux last
August 17; started updating last May 12 but hit a snag on the png update
reverse dependencies, now am starting over on a new GPT partition while
preserving the old (current amd64).
