I bought a wireless connection device that connects via USB port
and the interfaces I have investigated:


FreeBSD 7.0 September 6, 2007 FreeBSD 7.0
KV_BSD# man an | grep Belkin

KV_BSD# man ipw | grep Belkin

KV_BSD# man zyd | grep Belkin

do not make it past version 4000. I tried using a facility
called ndisgen to create a driver but that failed


KV_BSD# cd wi_driver
KV_BSD# ls
BLKWGU.inf BLKWGU_sys.ko blkwgu.cat probes
BLKWGU.sys README blkwgu.cat.ko
KV_BSD# cat README

Kernel module generation


The script will now try to generate the kernel driver module.
This is the last step. Once this module is generated, you should
be able to load it just like any other FreeBSD driver module.

Press enter to compile the stub module and generate the driver
module now:

Generating Makefile... done.
Building kernel module... done.
Cleaning up... done.

The file BLKWGU_sys.ko has been successfully generated.
You can kldload this module to get started.

Press return to exit.

I tried this patch


The patch for HEAD can be found at:

http://people.freebsd.org/~weongyo/patch_ndisusb_20080724.diff

but after following a number of stpes below, the make failed.


# cd /usr/src # patch -p0 < ~/patch_ndisusb_20080724.diff # cd
usr.sbin/ndiscvt # make && make install # cd ~/ # ndisgen ABC.inf
ABC.sys # cd /usr/src/sys/modules/ndis # make # kldload ./ndis.ko # cd
/usr/src/sys/modules/if_ndis # make


ep'
/usr/src/sys/modules/ndis/../../compat/ndis/subr_usbd.c:1025: error: 'NDISUSB_ENDPT_IOUT' undeclared (first use in this function)
*** Error code 1

if there is a way to make this device work it would be great, but
as an alternative I have acquiesced to spending more of my meager funds on a new device. I don't want to make this mistake again so I am hoping somebody at very least can help me choose one that does have a driver from the following list found at the website

Hopefully there are more than one that have drivers in case they are out of stock. I don't drive, so I don't want to go running around to a bunch of stores. There is a Best Buy near my friend's house in Emeryville that I am thinking of frequenting.
