wifi issues under -stable

i have two laptops, both are Compaq(HP) C300 series using the 
motherboards with the 945GM chipset and using T7200 and T7600 Core2 Duos.

One (this one) has an intel pro wireless 3945ABG installed, which returns:

wpi0: <Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG> irq 18 at device 0.0 on pci6
wpi0: Driver Revision 20071127
wpi0: 0x1000 bytes of rid 0x10 res 3 failed (0, 0xffffffffffffffff).
wpi0: could not allocate memory resource
device_attach: wpi0 attach returned 6

and the broadcom used in the other does the exact same thing.

I'm thinking that this isn't really a problem with the wifi, but may be 
a mini-pci-e issue.

does anyone know how to solve this problem?

previous attempts under fbsd-7 using the previous ndis driver would 
always panic upon kldload.

both laptops are currently running -stable with kernels from around the 
6th of this month.

any help would be appreciated.  i currently have to operate tethered 
with a linksys ural0 compat usb adapter.
