Default DesktopBSD & usb wifi

Hi all...

My first post here and really new to BSD. I absolutely love it. I've been a linux usr for years- Ubuntu in particular but have grown weary of certain stability issues...

So I sought out something better. I'm hoping this is the right forum section.

My Toshiba has an internal usb wifi adapter that uses the Realtek 8187b driver. I've used ndiswrapper in the past just fine.

I messed around a little with ndisgen and converted the driver to a .ko- I was really tired though, and was just playing cut-n-paste commands. Skipped the ASCii step. Oops. Never believed it would actually work anyway.

I'm just a neophyte and fumbling my way... Is there any hope for my laptop?

Thanks
rad
