I've got a Toshiba Satellite Pro P100-439 laptop, but when I try to load if_wpi.ko from the commandline I get the following error in dmesg and no interface wpi0 appears in ifconfig:
wpi0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG> irq 17 at device 0.0 on pci3
wpi0: 0x1000 bytes of rid 0x10 res 3 failed (0, 0xffffffffffffffff).
wpi0: could not allocate memory resource
device_attach: wpi0 attach returned 6
Maybe it has something to do with:
unknown: I/O range not supported
which can be found earlier in dmesg.
Back in the days when I had an i386 FreeBSD on my laptop, I had the same problem, but could "solve" it by not loading acpi.ko: if_wpi.ko loads fine and I could connect to my access point, so maybe it is acpi related.
