Default wireless on SGI O2

I just installed OpenBSD 5.4 via the install54 iso

everything went swimmingly,as expected, but the wireless card that wasn't recognized

it's a D-Link/Atheros AR2413/AR2414, and works perfectly under i386 and amd64 versions

do I need to copy files from an i386 install to the SGI?

which ones will I need?

thanks in advance

Gary

Welcome!

Two thoughts:
  • Run fw_update(1) as root as this will update all firmware recognized. Network connectivity will be required to access any needed packages.
  • Post the entire output of dmesg(8) as this will tell us how the kernel understands what hardware is present.

Not just for the O2, for an amd64/i386 machine where the card works as well.
