Just curious if anyone is working on RealTek Wifi (rt2860) driver for Haiku ? Seems to be in a few netbooks that I’ve looked at, including my MSI Wind.
Colin Günther is going to port the bsd driver for his wifi stack
k … yeh I see Realtek driver there but no 2860 chipset – hopefully the 2600 is similar.
The RT2860 chipset is not explicitly mentioned, but it seems to be compatible with the ral(4) BSD driver

The link points to the OpenBSD version. The stack I’m working on allows FreeBSD driver only. And as of now the FreeBSD ral driver only supports RT2500, RT2501 and RT2600 chipsets.
At least the manual in FreeBSD 8 Beta 3 is stating that. So possibly this might change, until final version of FreeBSD 8 arrives.
The best way to see, whether the RT2860 chipset is supported by FreeBSD 8 is an installation of it. Or wait 'til my driver port is ready
any progress on that RT2860 driver?
Or a handy guide on how to import freeBSD drivers into haiku? The closest I’ve found is this:
