from the kldstat I can see five modules are missing.
To be more specific the modules are:
my pciconf looks like:
# pciconf -lv | grep -B2 -A1 3945
none2 at pci16:0:0: class=0x028000 card=0x135c103c
chip=0x42228086 rev=0x02 hdr=0x00
vendor = 'Intel Corporation'
device = '10418086 Intel 3945ABG Wireless LAN
class = network
However, as you can see from the /boot/loader.conf,
the missing modules are declared.
#Intel HDA Audio
>From the dmesg the only message related to the
wireless is the following:
KLD file wlan_amrr.ko - could not finalize loading
