Hi Khris,<br><br>Yes, it did seem a bit strange for me since i do know that the em drivers do work on FreeBSD6.0 stable. I downloaded 1.4.1 which i see has FreeBSD 6.3 Prerelease, but it also does not work. <br><br>For the wireless card, I tried a work around using drivers for windows xp and ndisgen to convert them, but still no results. The wifi card is an "Intel 3945ABG Wireless LAN Controller".
<br><br>The ethernet card is an "Intel 82562GT 10/100".<br><br>Thanks.<br><br>Regards<br><br><div class="gmail_quote">On Dec 19, 2007 12:05 AM, Kris Moore <<a href="mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org">email@example.com</a>> wrote:
