Hardware problem

Hello FreeBSD,

I tried this card on two different PC and the result is the same. I
posted the dmesg.boot and dmesg.boot2 (the card was changed to another
PCI slot).
No conflicts shows the irq assignment during post processing.
I disabled PNP OS from BIOS - no result.
I forgot to mention that this card works with no problem under WinXP
on the same PC with the same configuration.

Is it this card (SMC 2602W) really supported by FreeBSD? As far as I
know there is 2602W v1 which is a PCMCIA card with a PCI convertor and
v2 (mine) which is a true PCI card, while man wi show (SMC 2602 EZ
Connect (3.3V) | Prism-II | PCI or PCMCIA).

I'm out of ideas? What about you?

Thank you for your support.

J> Hello FreeBSD,

J> Recently I bought a Wireless PCI card (SMC Ez Connect 2602W) being

J> Well seems that it is not supported. While booting my wireless card

J> Please help me with this problem, as I must choose between keeping

J> Hope to hear from you soon.
