 Re: Wireless card in a PCI slot doesnt work !!

It's a FreeBSD problem, just like Dan says himself in his own article.

I had the same issue, so then tried it on OpenBSD and works flawlessly! But of course, that's OpenBSD for you.. OpenBSD is just better most of the time with new hardware, etc.

I'm now gonna setup OpenBSD as an IPSec based WAP, NAT Router, Transparent IPSec Bridge, yadda yadda yadda... screw WEP! Not secure enough for me.
Just hopefully I'll be able to get 5-6 NICs working in this box without too many IRQ conflicts.
