This is indeed great news!
I have tested the driver on my laptop, amd it works:
tingo at kg-home$ uname -a
FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE FreeBSD 6.2-PRERELEASE #3: Fri Nov 10 23:09:04 CET 2006     root at  i386
tingo at kg-home$ ifconfig wpi0
        inet netmask 0xffff0000 broadcast
        ether 00:13:02:3e:d4:ce
        media: IEEE 802.11 Wireless Ethernet autoselect (OFDM/6Mbps)
        status: associated
        ssid kg4 channel 1 bssid 00:0f:66:51:aa:41
        authmode WPA privacy ON deftxkey UNDEF TKIP 2:128-bit txpowmax 100
        bmiss 7 protmode CTS roaming MANUAL bintval 100

(I actually SSH'ed into the laptop to get this message)
The driver only works with acpi disabled (tha fault of the laptop, not
the driver - it is the same with the bge driver), and it spits out soem
error messages. I'll update the web page with the information.
When updated, you can find dmesg output on

Let me know if I can test anything else to help.
Torfinn Ingolfsen,
