I've spent many many hours griping over changed chipsets in the
Linksys WMP11 cards that I've bought and/or found. USB Belkin is a
no-no too.

After a lot of wasted time and some wasted money the WMP11v27 and
WMP11v4 do not work under netbsd (-current) as they have NDA chipsets
(InfoComm went bust, the v27 is Broadcom). I filed a pr to update the
wi(4) man page (kern/30141).

I found some posts about it in the archives, and wanted to ask:

-What solutions have you found?

I'm running -current on port-sparc64 and can use PCI.

Any solid recommendations for things that work under netbsd?

What about a and g support? Is that working in -current?

I'm burned out with wifi cards at the moment.

If I could afford it I would get a ethernet wireless bridge...
skipping the whole drivers issue, but I think I'll be stuck with PCI.
