I can't remember the last version of PC-BSD I've tried, maybe 6.x? I'm going to download and install it tonight. Just read that it does in fact support my wireless card on my laptop (B43 in linux) so that is all the more reason for me to try it.


It has a driver equivalent for B43, yes, but for me the 8.0 release didn't work with it. I got the WLAN card up and running but soon my logs would fill with error messages and the network connection would be cut for random periods of time and randomly throughout the day. That's why I had to move my wireless server away from FreeBSD to Linux. Haven't tried 8.1 yet.
