That's weird, since there are a source code Linux
driver available (for example:
and the latest http://rt2x00.serialmonkey.com) and a
driver for (Open)BSD flavours
Does RT2460 isn't really supported on other BSD or is
only a dfly incompatibility?
We have the same root of the driver, which is written by Damien (thank
him very much).
AFAIK, *BSD does *not* support 2460 based cards. I really don't have
any idea why NetBSD lists 2460 based cards in their commit log (I will
take it as typo). 2460 probably will not be supported by the code in
sys/dev/ic/rt2560.c, let alone sys/dev/ic/rt2661.c. And code in
sys/dev/pci/if_ral_pci.c and sys/dev/cardbus/if_ral_cardbus.c will not
take 2460 as a ral(4).
Please point out if I am wrong here.
