Now I can feel more comfortable, I trust your insider knowledge.

I still would have to make fetchlist from FreeBSD, then fetch from NetBSD, then boot back to FreeBSD to compile/build.

Sort of cloak-and-dagger.

Better would be if I could get Hiro H50191 USB wireless adapter to work with driver rsu, could even try ndis as fallback and to see if that works.

I haven't yet tried with my new TP-Link wireless router that replaced a failing Netgear router.
