Default wifi cards : solution to get them working?


I have here several laptops with wifi card whom are working under linux, but not openbsd.
I was wondering, would it be possible to know if there are some openbsd devs whom accept to do some testing to allow those wifi cards to be working, by remotely processing coding new driver in ssh through ethernet/wired connection? a bit like for remote driver developpment, in case of it's not possible with the user, that the distance would not be a problem, and those wifi card be workign with openbsd..

it's a bit hard to accept that nvidia or broadcom chip are sometimes not usable at all with our lovely system, forcing us to use another one...
would a such project be possible?

thank you

I have there :

BCM43142 (flex20405)

AR9485 (hp-g7-2257sf)

RTL810xE // RTL8723BE (asus-x541u)

ar9565 (toshiba c55d-a13p) + QCA8172

ppps: even on haiku(ex-beos) those cards works :P
