Sepherosa Ziehau’s got a patch that updates the em(4) driver (that’s a network chipset, if it’s unfamiliar) to the latest version from Intel’s website. Give it a try if you’ve got the hardware.Â It’ll be in the tree in two weeks.
If you’re thinking about buying a wireless card to use with DragonFly, Sepherosa Ziehau recommends cards supported by the ath(4), ral(4) and acx(4) drivers.Â No, I’m not sure which those are.
Sepherosa Ziehau has added the ath(4) driver, for many models of wireless card, to DragonFly.
Bill Marquette has ported the lnc driver from FreeBSD to DragonFly (link forthcoming), which is in itself a port of the le driver from NetBSD.Â Pathces are available to try it yourself, or it should be added to DragonFly soon.
Sepherosa Ziehau has improved support for the acx networking chipset, adding WPA2 support, though not yet for the acx100.
Sepherosa Ziehau has his version of the rtw(4) driver available for testing.Â This is taken fromt he NetBSD driver, and is used in newer wireless cards.
Sepherosa Ziehau has an experimental conversion of 802.11 support found in FreeBSD 6
New device support is always good: Sepherosa Ziehau and Sascha Wildner have put together a driver for TI acx100/acx111 wireless network cards. It’s been tested with D-Link 520 and 650 cards. (that’s my guess on the product links, there.)
Assuming nobody finds a problem, it’ll be in the system in a week.
