I did a preliminary port several months ago:

It is known to crash some place arround firmware loading.  I do not
have hardware to keep going, so if you are interested, you can
continue it or start from scratch (NetBSD's wpi port may be a better
start point than OpenBSD's)

I will be glad to commit it, if you can knock it out :-)

Best Regards,

Hello Sephe,

I have the hardware and I am willing to test this and try to make it
work on my laptop. I tweaked your preliminary port a bit so that it
compiles on HEAD. The interface is correctly detected when I load the
module. But now I'm stuck. How do I upload the firmware? I've
installed pkgsrc sysutils/wpi-firmware.

I tried the following but I get an error:

class# ipwcontrol wpi0 -f /usr/pkg/libdata/if_wpi/ipw3945.ucode
ipwcontrol: Can't load /usr/pkg/libdata/if_wpi/ipw3945.ucode to
driver: Bad address
