I'm trying to coerce a new Linksys WMP11 802.11b card into working on a FreeBSD install of 4.7-RELEASE. In looking through the freebsd-mobile lists I've seen some discussion on this (from around this time last year), but all of the resources included in that discussion (particularly the patches to the wi driver) are out of sync with the kernel sources I've got. I just cvsup'd 4.x-STABLE and -current and didn't manage to find either the vendor ID or device ID reported in dmesg in the driver code there. I was wondering if anyone out there could give me an update on support for this wireless card? The posts from freebsd-mobile (http://www.riverside.org/archive/html/freebsd-mobile/2002-02/msg00038.html) that were most promising mentioned commiting the patches to -current, but I don't see any evidence of that in my kernel sources.

To top off my confusion when I boot I'm getting different dev/vendor id's from the card than are mentioned in the post referenced above.

Here's my dmesg output:

pcib0: <Intel 82845 Host to PCI bridge> on motherboard
pci0: <PCI bus> on pcib0
pcib1: <Intel 82845 PCI-PCI (AGP) bridge> at device 1.0 on pci0
pci1: <PCI bus> on pcib1
pci1: <NVidia Riva Ultra Vanta TNT2 graphics accelerator> at 0.0 irq 11
pcib2: <Intel 82801BA/BAM (ICH2) Hub to PCI bridge> at device 30.0 on pci0
pci3: <PCI bus> on pcib2
pci3: <unknown card> (vendor=0x14e4, dev=0x4301) at 2.0 irq 11
xl0: <3Com 3c905C-TX Fast Etherlink XL> port 0xac00-0xac7f mem 0xdfefdf80-0xdfefdfff irq 10
at device 5.0 on pci3
xl0: Ethernet address: 00:01:03:de:12:db
miibus0: <MII bus> on xl0
ukphy0: <Generic IEEE 802.3u media interface> on miibus0
ukphy0: 10baseT, 10baseT-FDX, 100baseTX, 100baseTX-FDX, auto

The linksys WMP11 is listed as pci3. Note that the vendor/dev ids are different from those listed in the patch posted by Thomas Skibo <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> to freebsd-mobile (as referenced above) which shows the device as:

+ {0x1260, 0x3873, WI_BUS_PCI_NATIVE, "Linksys WMP11 PCI Prism2.5"},

So, the qeustion is, can I make this (actually these 10) cards work with FreeBSD? Any help or pointers on this would be greatly appreciated.
