Broadcom in PC BSD 8.x


Hi,

Is Broadcom BCM 4312 already supported out of the box in PC BSD 8.x...?

I know there is a port in FeeBSD in /etc/ports/net/... but what If i do not have a wired connection...?

and to load
Code:
#kldload bwn
#ifconfig -a
(look for bwn0)
#ifconfig bwn0 up
(be sure the radio is on)
(follow the advice above if the default PCBSD networking does not work)
