Yes, that works and shows I have BCM4310 wireless controller.
I am new to wireless nic's .
How do I load the driver or set this to work under FreeBSD?
This FreeBSD is working from a Flash Drive USB using the 7.2 down load
that Manolis made for us. The main drive has linux on it and it works
with the wlan so I think it will work once I figure how to make FreeBSD
see and use it.
