I feel his pain. I need 64 bit drivers for cards that FBSD does not
support, mostly 'N' protocol wireless cards. The inability to secure
and use perfectly good drivers that are available for Windows users in
FreeBSD is a real PIA. Of course, it does give my Window user friends
something to laugh about.
