[nycbug-talk] Wireless internet card on FreeBSD laptop

In a previous message, you mentioned Verizon - they are probably rebranding
someone else's card (e.g. Dlink, Linksys etc.).  If you haven't already done
so, I'd recommend contacting Verizon's (or other point of sale) tech
support, find out what make and model the card really is, and download that
driver from the manufacturer's website.

Thank you for your suggestion.

I tried ndisgen in the following way:

# ndisgen pwi_bus.inf pwi_bus.sys

bit it failed with with the error message "I don't recognize this file
format. It may not be a valid .INF file".

It seems that the .inf and .sys files which I copied from the Windows
laptop (which was given to me by my employer with the wireless card)
to the FreeBSD are not the correct driver files...
