the asus wl-100 pcmcia wireless lan adaptor is supported by freebsd
(prism chipset) but is not listed in the vendor/product info

i made 2 pathes which will add the vendor/product information/id's of the 
asus wl-100 card in if_wi_pccard.c and pccarddevs


first add the card information to /etc/pccard.conf or /etc/defaults/pccard.conf:

card "ASUS" "802_11b_PC_CARD_25"
        config auto "wi" ?
        insert /etc/pccard_ether $device start
        remove /etc/pccard_ether $device stop

then apply the 2 patches to sys/dev/pccard/pccarddevs and

recompile, install and boot the new kernel and my asus wl-100 pcmcia card works
