    Hey guys
    I recently installed PC BSD on my RF510-S03AU Laptop
    The problem I am currently having is that none of the usb's recognise any devices at all.
    I am very aware that broadcom internal wireless seems to be a large issue with Linux and Unix based OS.

    My question here is how can I get my USB to recognise anything?
    I have a USB wireless dongle handy Dlink DWA-110. I have tried NDISwrapper to install windows drivers into BSD but it still seems to refuse to accept them.

    I am terrible at linux and unix codes so anything you guys could write up that I couls C&P into terminal or Jail would be fantastic.

    If you have any questions about the specs of my laptop they are as follows.

    Processor

    Intel® Core™ i7 Processor 720QM (1.60GHz/ 6MB)

    Memory

    4 GB (DDR3 / 2 GB x 2) System Memory

    Graphic

    2 GB (GDDR3) of Dedicated External Graphics Memory
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 420M Dedicated Graphics Processor

    Storage

    640 GB (5400 rpm S-ATA) Hard Drive

    Communication

    10/100/1000 Wired EtherNet LAN
    802.11 b/g/n Wireless LAN attached
    Bluetooth 3.0 + HS enabled

    /O Port

    VGA Port included
    HDMI Port included
    HeadPhone-out Port included
    Mic-in Port included
    Internal Mic Port included

    Link to exact specs and more information

    I am currently running Ubuntu 10.10 and it is pretty much working flawlessly.
    Also running Win7 Ultimate x64 and the Ubuntu is x64

    Thanks so much for your help

    No I hadn't. I sort of automatically went straight for the source. I feel sort of silly now and apologise about posting in the wrong area.

    The specs claim it has two USB 2.0 and two "UBS" 3.0 ports. Assuming that's a typo, figure out which ports are which. The 2.0 ports may work with FreeBSD. The 3.0 ports, probably not yet. HPS announced USB 3.0 code for testing on the freebsd-usb mailing list.

    It's not a problem if you ask it here, so long as you know what the pitfalls/problems may be.

    Even the 2.0 USB doesn't even react to anything.
