What's the wireless chipset in those?
It's an RT2860.

was hoping to get my eee 901 machine (fully) working with some BSD OS -
ideally dragonfly, but one step at a time..
since my dragonfly time is unfortunately much less than it should be,
some (hopefully accurate) notes compiled 2/15 w/r/t status in the

OS           Ethernet Wifi Sleep
=========    ======== ==== =====
FreeBSD      yes      no   yes   
OpenBSD      no       yes  maybe
NetBSD       no       no   yes?
DragonflyBSD no       yes  maybe

Drivers are 'ale' for ethernet, and 'ral' for wifi.


  - get all srcs on dev01
  - setup freebsd on eee02
  - build freebsd on dev01
  - merge openbsd ral driver changes to freebsd
  - migrate eee01 to freebsd
  - reinstall eee02 with dragonfly
  - migrate ale to dragonfly
  - migrate netbsd sleep/suspend to dragonfly
  - profit!!



  - keeps my head straight
  - notes on 700 setup


  - bootable freebsd images
