I just bought a new Orinoco Gold card, and cannot get it to work. dmesg says this:
ppcard0: <unknown card> (manufacturer=0x0156, product=0x0003) at function 0
pccard0:    CIS info: Agere Systems, Wireless PC Card Model 0111,
As a result I get no wi0 device.
Orinoco card model number is 8420-WD
Running 5.1 -Current
Card and pccard slots are known good. Other PCMCIA device (nic) is working fine.
Any help would be appreciated, as this the third card I bought trying to get my freebsd laptop to go wireless.
