The 3945ABG needs the wpi driver (ipw is for 2100 chipset)
Damien's freebsd wpi driver has been discontinued (for some time see
http://kerneltrap.org/node/6497/ .)
The page for the driver currently being developed is
http://www.clearchain.com/wiki/Wpi but sadly
a) the tarballed versions are old and wont compile on -STABLE or
-CURRENT (dont know about 6.2-RELEASE though)
b) Unless you have perforce access you can only download the more recent
development version file by file (from
http://perforce.freebsd.org/depotTreeBrowser.cgi?FSPC=//depot/user/benjsc/wpi)
c) it doesnt work for me anyway ;)

sorry its not better news

Vince
