To make the smallest upgrade possible and minimize potential reconfig issues etc. 8.1 was the first release supporting WG111v3.

Could give a try with 8.4 if there was any major fix to WPA and WLAN drivers since 8.1? With minor version upgrade there should be no change to installed ports etc., correct?

Still the other quesion: What is the WLAN (PCI/PCIe) card most people use HAPPILY in FreeBSD? Support for 802.11n would not be bad.
