FreeBSD improving wireless networking

News on Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD.

Hope Haiku wifi drivers which are based on FreeBSD drivers will also be improved


They are importing drivers from Linux using their Linux compatibility layer. And at present they are focusing on iwlwifi (the Intel WiFi driver), and trying to get 802.11ac working with it… which we already have working on all the equivalent hardware using the iwm and iwx drivers from OpenBSD.

So, while we can’t really benefit from this work, it doesn’t really matter anyway since we already have these features.
