Of course... I didn't mean to imply anything like, "you ought to be
working harder on this", and I'm sorry if it sounded that way. Your
efforts make my FreeBSD notebook much more useful and are very much
appreciated! My question was more about the process... are we at a point
in the development where PRs are helpful, or is there so much code churn
/ so few hands that it would just be noise?

I'll definitely do that the next time I'm at a Foundation booth. :)

I know that. But, unfortunately, not everybody seems to know and therefore be 
able to appreciate this fact, as one can read sometimes on some superficial 
sites and forums. Actually, i have seen you in talks asking for Hardware 
Donations and i was quite surprised that the development of e.g. a new wireless 
driver struggles already at the fact that one single, capable and willing 
developer has problems getting even one single device for which he/she wants to 
write a driver for. In other words, you provide, at least in my opinion, an 
enormous benefit to the project for free, but it still costs you money, and 
because of this state, i can imagine, sometimes nerves too.

Yes, this is my bad. I got confused about it appearing on the 12.0-CURRENT 
Release Notes. It should have been clear to me as the OP indeed already wrote, 
he is using iwn on 11-CURRENT.

Sorry for the fuzz.

Adrian: Perhaps is it because you're constantly working FreeBSD Wireless like 
bwn and other drivers that people think, yeah, this guy must be getting paid

Development is 100% volunteer. No one is being paid to do it, so it happens
at the speed of spare time.

If you'd like that changed then please advocate to the foundation about how
important wireless is!

Indeed, the situation has been improving dramatically over the past few 
months. However, now that things are at a state of "the basics work", is 
it a good time to create PRs such as, "iwm7265 disconnects from my wi-fi

I think there'll be some 11n work on the iwm driver soon. I just
wanted to make sure the rest of the firmware command basics work right
(which they do now) before I started looking at 11n.

Under 11-CURRENT, I can connect with 11g (54MBps) only. Is there some

Can I solve this with upgrade to the 7260 or 8260 wifi cards? Has 
these cards better support on 11-CURRENT?
