The SuperMMimo or whatever extension 108Mbps throughput and all that good stuff... Use the Windows XP driver file and inf and use the NDIS emulation driver builder to generate a kernel module for that card. I know this makes the driver, I have not verified that I can connect yet with it, but I have heard this is the best way to do it. I know it tells me a file is missing /compat/ndis/Reg?????? something or other. I have not looked into the man pages for this file but I would have to guess it is just a registry layer for tweaking the driver. However the module loads without errors and ifconfig says the device is detected, and all the lights on the card start blinking. I just have a nasty WPA key that I've been too lazy to copy from my Windows partition to verify that everything is indeed working (and I refuse to leave my connection insecure even for a second or three.) Also haven't had time to address the missing Registry compat file. This assumes your are using Rel_6 (which you are, if one can read one has a fortune...) I know there is a nice simple script file that does all the work for you, the name just escapes me but the ndis manpage is a great place to start. good luck -brian _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
