With stable:

Question is
Is there a difference between Buffalo WLI3-CB-G54L and Cisco Linksys Wireless-G WPC54G? The some chipset....
Maybe I trying to current and put firmware in /libdata/firmware/bwi?

With OpenBSD works, after put firmware but not very good. watchdog timeout...
With FreeBSD no problem after install from ports firmware /net/bwi-kmod

Sorry for my english.
