| Dear all,
| My Cisco Aironet MiniPCI card in a Thinkpad R40 doesn't work at all.
| When I boot from the 5.2.1 iso it hangs while detecting the card.
| Does this mean it should work now?
It it normal to hang for a little bit. Maybe 10s. Now to make it
work you need an older version of firmware and the driver in -current
or delete the code in /sys/dev/an/if_an.c between the lines that
What you could do it remove the card from behind one of the doors
on the bottom of your laptop boot and then install FreeBSD including
the sources for sys. Then recompile with the above change. Flash
the firmware via Window. Then it should work.
This assumes that your laptop is okay and not messing up system resources.
