you are not referring to the same card.

the pro/wireless 2200bg is supported by the openbsd iwi driver. i made a start on porting it for my x41t but never got round to finishing it, it gets as far as loading firmware onto the card and booting it.


someone else is welcome to continue this work, i am busy with other things at the moment.

I tried putting the iwi firmware from firmware.openbsd.org in /lib/firmware and rebooting, but there is (not surprisingly) still no wifi card listed in the boot messages.
