: Hi,

: I recently purchased a D-Link DWL-650 16-bit pcmcia card. When I put the card in on my 5.2rc1 laptop it told me card unsuported. I looked arround on the Internet and found my card had a prism3 chipset, good but bad. Since the name of the card, when read by pccardd, is a little different I put the card in my 4.9 laptop and added a line to /etc/pccard.conf. When the card went in the wi driver was loaded, but this came up:
:

Return it!!!  I banged my head against the wall w/that card.  It is
indeed a prism3.  However, when I did some digging in the Linux mailing
lists, I found out that it loads it's firmware via serial eeprom when
the card is initialized.  Those guys are still working on getting that
part working.  From what digging around I did, I didn't see any support
for such operations in FreeBSD.
