Intel Wireless chip 3945bg

Folks,

Many people in several sites/forums complain about the support for 3945bg intel wireless chip. There is a driver called wpi and its working on openbsd so it's not that hard to port it to freebsd.

Unless the users that need this driver take a step front and start asking for it in the official mailing lists this driver won't show up in a near future. There must be a strong user base with this chip to develop/port something like a wireless driver.

Make yourself available to help in any way, even if it's just testing, and ask politely if anyone is interested in making some efforts in order to get this chip working.

Happy new year!! ;)
