Two new wireless drivers have been comitted recently. Grab the newest snapshot (9/16/06) and test them out if you have one of these cards. We don't have much time before OpenBSD 4.0, let's make sure these are ready!
uath(4), a driver for Atheros USB2.0 AR5005UG/AR5005UX chipsets. Based on a black-box analysis of the Windows binary driver. Requires a firmware that is not freely redistributable (see man uath). The driver handles both pre- and post-firmware devices. Contact damien@.
pgt(4), a driver for Connexant/Intersil GT-series devices which can support the Full-Mac firmwares, using the ISL3877, ISL3880, and ISL3890 chips. The pgt driver will not (yet) work on similar devices using the ISL3886 or similar chips which use the Soft-Mac firmwares. Contact mglocker@.
Note: Both drivers require firmware that cannot be redistributed with OpenBSD. Refer to the man pages for download sites and instructions.
