Looks like I am more lucky, but with just T60

Ehh, tried with it, and finally just replace hardware on 'ath0: <Atheros
since that wireless works more or less fine

Did not tried such beast, pried another EVDO PCMC card and failed also
(Ubiquam UM-300). FreeBSD detects sio port on card, but does not detects
PCMCI USB hub. Probably I also need to try

Never seen that, I am on RELENG_7

Ehh, only mobile platform that has strong FreeBSD support loose that
Looks like root of problem is CoreDuo CPU, but still no any clues.

See above, works fine for me (in mini-PCI slot).

Did not get, do you have two wireless cards or just try to use two
drivers against single card ?
Also I may say:
- IBM dock station works for me
- IBM special controls mostly works (brightness, think-light, volume,
- PCMCI card slot works also
- PCI Express slot looks like working, but I have no card to try
- Bluetooth works as well
- radeonhd xorg driver does almost everything I need, except 3D support,
and it is not compatible with brightness control
- SoftModem never works for me
- Touchpad/stick works, even with synaptics driver under X, but
some-times it stop responding
