3.0 wireless PCI cards
I'm looking to set up an OBSD 3.0 machine as a wireless router.
Unfortunately, I have been unable to find cards that work.
I bought a D-Link DWL-520, a Linksys WMP11 and a US Robotics "Wireless
Access PCI Adapter Model No. 2415".
OBSD didn't recognize any of these cards on startup. Only the US
Robotics card is a PCI bridge, the other two are all-in-one cards. I
didn't necessarily expect them to work, as I had heard only about
bridges on this list and in every other place I looked online. But
apparently, Fry's has stopped selling ISA/PCI->PCMCIA bridges.
So I guess my question is twofold. One, is there anything I can do to
get these PCI cards to be recognized by OBSD? If not, where can I find
wireless cards that OBSD *will* like in the Bay Area? (Fry's doesn't
sell Lucent/Orinoco/Agere cards or Cisco cards. And, like I said, they
don't sell adapters either. Except the USR one. Which doesn't work.)
And yes, I have seen them online. But I'd really like to get this
handled right away. And I don't want to have to deal with shipping if I
need to return the item.
