Hi,
I am new to freeBSD (just installed it yesterday :)). I used ubuntu before this. The problem is I'm not able to get the .sys and .inf files for my card. Ubuntu used to detect my cards and I never had to use ndiswrapper. Reading about setting up the wireless in the internet I figured that we need to get .sys and .inf files. But I'm getting only .exe files. how can I get the .sys and .inf.

here is the
Code:
pciconf -lv

Code:
