after issuing this command, no devices showedup in ifconfig -a and
this is the result in /var/log/messages

kernel: ndis0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG Network Connection> mem 0xd2100000-0xd2100fff irq 18 at device 0.0 on pci6
kernel: ndis0: couldn't map memory
kernel: device_attach: ndis0 attach returned 6

There is no wireless devices showing..! :(
Again its HP pavilion dv5178us
the wireless is a builtin, and its Broadcom Corp HP Integrated module.

This seems to indicate that your interface is the Intel 3945ABG chipset which gives you the keywords you need to search for a driver. IIRC one is in development, they are still discussing how to name it. Previous chipsets use the ipw and iwi driver, check this website:

Also, they mention the need to install ports/net/iwi-firmware-kmod
