Suspect many people may be curious with BSD. I definitely is interested in trying it out, unfortunately I am using the USB wireless adapter, Dlink-DWL-G122-RevC which is using the ralink rt73 chipset.


BSD does not have support for it while Linux has.


Any idea how to get this wireless dongle working in BSD :)



Cheers

    The ural manpage should give you an idea if that model is covered:

    I'm unsure if that USB adapter works with FBSD 6.x right now, but I heard it does work on FBSD 7. The next release of PC-BSD after 1.4 will be based on 7, and hopefully work out of box in your case.
