In fact I'm waiting for availability of Atheros based cards in Germany.
But they are not eben announced on the European Linksys/D-Link/Netgear
web-sites (i.e. I do not think, that they'll become officially available
soon). (For example: Linksys offers the WRT55AG and corresponding cards
in the US, the WRT54G and xxx54G cards in Europe.)
Besides, having the TI-WLAN chip supported would allow use of the other
half of the cheap 802.11b cards that are not based on the Prism/Hermes
chip. You often can't tell, whether you'll receive a supported card or
not since many manufacturers changed their card and kept the name (often
from Prism to ACX100).
So, having ACX100 support in FreeBSD would definitely be a good thing!
