I have a Dell Inspiron 1525 with the intel wireless ethernet.
The iwn driver in CURRENT works well.
The http://people.freebsd.org/~yongari/msk/msk.88E8040.patch patch for
the 88E8040 simply doesn't work. It is not because of lack of testing
(which I have performed for Pyun who wrote the patch), but apparently
because of lack of reliable documentation. There is a driver for
FreeBSD on the Marvell web site, which did work for me, but I am told it
I also have had a hard time getting the sound to work. The oss port
does work, but has a habit of freezing up.
