AMD64 Arch & ironically it worked beautifully for ages in windows, but i  got 
sick of windows having been used to FreeBSD, so i re-installed FreeBSD an 
using the onboard LAN card atm, but am wanting to goto wireless.

none1 at pci0:3:5:0:       class=0x020000 card=0x700f1799 chip=0x700f1799 
rev=0x20 hdr=0x00
    vendor     = 'Belkin Research and Development Labs'
    class      = network
    subclass   = ethernet

Chipset is RT8185L an i used the ndisgen to create the .ko file, which is just 
over 572kb in size.

ironically the 8180 works fine, but naturally wont do my wireless card.
