Sorry if this is not the right list, I have checked de Hardware Notes for 
FreeBSD 4.8 and there is this wireless adapter called:
Netgear MA401

Its a PCMCIA adapter.

But i was checking on google and found this one:

Netgear MA311 802.11b Wireless PCI Adapter

I need a PCI card for my desktop wich runs FreeBSD I want to connect peer to 
peer 2 FreeBSD boxes at 1 mile from each other, (I want to try the pringles 
antennas as described in

I know there are Aironet PCI adapters but they are expensive, I want to try  
with cheaper hardware and the Netgear is cheaper in an order of maggnitude.
Hope some one knows about this, if possible, or point me to the right list to 

Thanks in advance.
