FreeBSD XXX 8.0-STABLE FreeBSD 8.0-STABLE #1: Thu Apr 22 08:52:03 EDT 2010     

Problem described and discussed with the pfSense team here:


Essentially, the urtw driver seems to have been updated in OpenBSD, and should 
be incorporated into FreeBSD.

The specific issue is using the Alfa AWUS036H USB WLAN card on pfSense 2.0, 
which in turn uses FreeBSD 8. The urtw driver is not recognising the vendor of 
the card, despite OpenBSD man pages for urtw clearly showing support for the 
card. Given this card is a favourite for airocrack-ng due to it's 500mW/1W 
radio output, it's a very popular card. 
Try to configure the Alfa AWUS036H USB WLAN using urtw(4) on a FreeBSD 8.0 (or 
ideally pfSense 2.0) installation.
