thanks gang, unfortunately this said nothing about my wifi card, which is a Linksys WMP-11 card which uses a broadcom chip that is not opensourced. It works great on Linux and Windows using NDISWrapper. I guess I was hoping I could do something similar on BSD. Oh well.

Don't give up hope just yet...

I've just started to look under the hood of this release as a VMware client, so no need for NDISwrapper. But you may want to check out the 'ndisgen", "ndis" and "ndiscvt" man pages for a NDISwrapper equivalent (NDISulator/Project Evil). More info at:

The FreeBSD docs may help as well:
