DLink DWL-G650 (h/w ver. B4)

Thanks for the reply, and sorry for the delay - long weekend. If I put the
card in before bootup, it will give the first set of errors that I listed
during boot, then will give the "bfe0 timeout" errors after it has finished
the boot scripts. So, that method doesn't work either.
I haven't tried disabling my ethernet device.. though that's a good idea.
How exactly do you do that? I tried "kldunload bfe", where bfe is my nic
device, however that doesn't work, since bfe is built into the kernel. I
tried syncing my sources and upgrading the kernel again, but something is
broken in the sources, and the kernel doesn't compile even a GENERIC kernel.
So, is there a way to unload a *part* of the kernel module -- namely bfe?
Thanks for the help, it would be great if I could get this working. And it
should work.... since it uses the ar5211.sys driver on the windows side,
which means Atheros....
