According to the NetBSD man pages, my Compaq WL110 wireless card is not
supported. I looked at the source, and in /sys/dev/ic/wi.c I don't see my
card in the wi_card_indent structure. I also don't see my card in
/sys/dev/pcmcia/if_wi_pcmcia.c in the wi_pcmcia_product structure.
However, FreeBSD does support my wireless card. Could I just simple copy
the card id, name, and other information from the FreeBSD source into
the respective files in the NetBSD source? If so, which files would I
need to edit in the NetBSD and FreeBSD sources?
I had emailed a message to this list earlier saying that I couldn't get my
wireless card working with GENERIC_LAPTOP, but no reply. I really don't
think this is a problem with my kernel or laptop. I think it's just
because my card is not supported.
