Re: Laptop Intel Wireless drivers?

So do I just get the latest syssrc.tgz in current, or do I wait for it
to be backported in 5.0.2? Is it also the same with the ralink (ral)
drivers? I have a ralink USB network card in case I can't get the iwn
to work.

It's frustrating to download the GENERIC and discover that even though
the drivers are noted in the kernel config (and not commented out),
but I can't get them to work--nor be able to find reasonble docs on

I'm trying to relearn the NetBSD way, so please bear with me :-)
