I've got some older Lucent WaveLan (the old 1Megabit version)
Uses the 'wi' driver.

Works great.

For those in the know, I've got an Access Point to, but
FreeBSD does not want to use that.
So I run my wavelan network in Ad-Hoc (Peer to Peer) mode.
The Access Point is a nice WaveLan to Ethernet bridge
box.

So instead I have a FreeBSD server with a PCMCIA card adapter
installed along side the ethernet card and I do
bridging from wavelan to ethernet there.
