I dl-ed winxp64 driver and tried running:

ndisgen Drt2870.inf Drt2870.sys

but got: ndiscvt: line 841: :syntax error.
CONVERSION FAILED

Line (last one) 841 of DrtDrt2870.inf is as follows:

BaldEagle_SSID = amz?;'seimdf^j$#@ksjdo*(hq!


Any hint what's wrong there?


Sincerely,
Gour

Could you send me the whole file? It’s hard to tell from just that line. Also, 
in answer to your previous question, no, you do not have to repeat the process 
with each OS upgrade. It will only need doing once, except maybe if you rebuild 
world and kernel.

Hmm... unusual. Try removing that last line entirely - it doesn’t seem to serve 
any useful purpose I can see.

 It sounds good and it would allow me to spare some bucks (Croatian kunas) if
 the performance would be satisfying.

Performance is generally OK with NDIS drivers, the only issue is you often miss 
out on features like promiscuous and monitor mode.

If you are wanting to purchase an adapter, any of those 3 would be fine. 
However, have you considered using your builtin NIC with ndis(4)? [See section 
12.5.1.1 of the FreeBSD Handbook][1] for instructions, or reply to this email 
if you need help.

 After resolving some issue I'm preparing to fully migrate from (openSUSE)
 Linux to Free/PC-BSD and looking for advice in regard to support for USB Wifi
 adapters.
 
 My netbook has integrated RTL8188CE chipset which, afaict, is not supported
 under FreeBSD.
 
 From before I have D-Link's DWA-125 USB adapter which works, but it's a
 little bulky in comparison with newer mini/nano adapters and after some
 research I've arrived to the following list of adapters which are easy to get
 here:
 
 1) Asus USB-N10
 
 2) Trendnet TEW-649UB
 
 3) Edimax EW-7811UN
 
 According to the list at
 https://www.freebsd.org/releases/10.1R/hardware.html#support
 
 1)  2) use  'rsu' driver while Edimax is supported by 'urtwn'.
 
 What would you recommend as the best option?
 
 
 Sincerely,
 Gour
