Hello,

I try to install from the ports the net/p54u and I am unable to find the source on the freebsd ftp and on the prism54.org (http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Download) there is only the linux drivers :(

[root@pbsd /usr/ports/net/p54u]# make
===> Vulnerability check disabled, database not found
=> p54u-0.8.tar.bz2 doesn't seem to exist in /usr/ports/distfiles/.

=> Couldn't fetch it - please try to retrieve this
=> port manually into /usr/ports/distfiles/ and try again.

Stop in /usr/ports/net/p54u.


I read the CHANGES, MOVED, README, UPDATING, INDEX-6, etc
[root@pbsd /usr/ports]# grep p54 INDEX-6

Hello,

Damn ... I just bought a prism usb wifi card because it works with FreeBSD :(

I try the netgear wg111 v2 and it did not work so I bought the prism one, sniff, sniff :(

I am unable to find a usb wifi card to work with FreeBSD (I looked at future shop, best buy and bureau en gros, nothing or I afraid to buy one and to find out that it does not work, 2 wifi card may be not a 3rd)

Thanks for your help and for fgrep, I will continue my quest ...
