Just one for the archives. Been Prism hunting for my home network, one card
for my gateway and one of my laptop (Toshiba Libretto 70CT).
Desktop got an Actiontec PCI card, which I suspect is just a PCMCIA card
and adaptor on the same PCB. Works fine:
wi0 at pci2 dev 3 function 0 "Intersil PRISM2.5 Mini-PCI WLAN" rev 0x01: irq 12
wi0: PRISM 2.5 ISL3874A(PCI), Firmware 1.0.7 (primary), 1.3.5 (station), address [blah]
The matching Actiontec PCMCIA card for my laptop didn't work.
The card seems OK in other peoples (newer) laptops but in mine it a) didn't
fit very well b) caused a PCIC error and locked the machine. The wi manpage
mentions that some cards require 3.3V, yet my laptop should support that.
Anyway, now running a D-Link DRC650 (branded "NetEasy") which seems to
be similar to the original DWL650s (fan shaped antenna):
wi0 at pcmcia0 function 0 "D, Link DRC-650 11Mbps WLAN Card, Version 01.02" port 0x400/64: irq 9
wi0: PRISM II HWB3163 SST-flash, Firmware 0.3.0 (primary), 0.8.3 (station), address [blah]
