I have a laptop with FreeBSD 6.1 on it and I am very glad with it.
Recently, I received a card for wireless internet - it is a Verizon
Wireless PC5740 card. I would like to run it on my laptop under
FreeBSD. Can you provide me some pointers and hints how I can do this.
I did some searching on it and I found [1], which contains instruction
on how to change the kernel. I followed them and built successfully my
kernel wih them, but the problem is that when I plug the card in the
laptop, dmesg does not show anything.

Could you please provide me some help for setting up the card? Thank
you very much in advance.
