Thanks for the suggestions. I was able to get the
wireless lan up and running now on my laptop. I used
it for an hour and it seems to run stably...
Basically i first got the iwi-firmware-2.3_2.tbz
package and then installed it on the laptop and i was
able to get connected to my wirless router and then to
internet.That was great...
Thanks a lot again to FreeBSD community...
With thanks and regards
