NetBSD puffy 4.0 NetBSD 4.0 (GENERIC_LAPTOP) #1: Wed Sep 10 17:56:18 UTC 2008  
root@puffy:/usr/src/sys/arch/i386/compile/GENERIC_LAPTOP i386

The 3COM CRWE777A PCMICA card isn't recognised by the wi(4) driver. 
Other BSD variants have support for this card. 
It appears that the Product Id is simply missing for this particular card.
Insert a 3COM CRWE777A PCMCIA card into any laptop.
Adding the following product id to 'pcmciadevs' and running 'make -f 
Makefile.pcmciadevs' should generate the correct files to checkin.

product 3COM 3CRWE777A          0x0777 3Com AirConnect CRWE777A Wireless LAN

The man page for wi(4) should also be updated to show support for this card. 
I'd happily modify that file and submit a patch for it but I'm not sure how 
this process works with NetBSD.
Please email me the instructions or a link to them, as I'd like to get involved.
