I have recently installed FreeBSD 5.3-Release on a ThinkPad T41, and
upgraded to 5.4-stable:
FreeBSD kg-jobbpc3.kg4.no 5.3-STABLE FreeBSD 5.3-STABLE #0: Sun Jan 30
22:05:15 CET 2005 root at kg-jobbpc3.kg4.no:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/T41
This ThinkPad have an Atheros-based wireless card built-in:
tingo at kg-jobbpc3$ dmesg | grep ath0
ath0: <Atheros 5212> mem 0xc0210000-0xc021ffff irq 11 at device 2.0 on
pci2 ath0: mac 5.6 phy 4.1 5ghz radio 1.7 2ghz radio 2.3
ath0: Ethernet address: 00:05:4e:46:ba:e5

ath0: 11g rates: 1Mbps 2Mbps 5.5Mbps 11Mbps 6Mbps 9Mbps 12Mbps 18Mbps
24Mbps 36Mbps 48Mbps 54Mbps
I'm using a Linksys WRT54G as an access point. Both the WRT54G and the
T41 supports WPA, so the AP is configured with WPA-PSK.
With "other os" this works; I connect my T41 to the AP, and it just
works. But I don't want to use "other os" on this ThinkPad.
Now, is there a way to get the T41 with FreeBSD 5.3-stable to support
