once extracted make a link from the wpi directory to
/usr/src/sys/dev/wpi or it wont build correctly.
when youve done the make;make install
kldload firmware.ko
kldload wpi_ucode.ko
kldload if_wpi.ko

and you should have a wpi device and a bunch of info on the console
(possibly including errors) I havent tried with WEP or similar as I dont
have it turned on.
Occasionally I loose connection and have to reset the wpi by
kldunload wpi_ucode
kldunload if_wpi
kldload wpi_ucode

(the wpi kld wont actually unload but this seems to get it to a working
state again)

Good luck.
