Hello, I am pretty new to bsd i know very little and am looking to learn. I installed PCSBD on my Compaq v5105us and i need to know how to get my Wifi Card working. All i know is that it is a Broadcom. I was searching for possibly a driver or anything and i was unable to find anything. Can anyone shed some light on how i can do this?

plz, search the forum. I know there is a "complete" howto on how to enable the wireless.
You can check on the internet for: Freebsd + wireless

Did you check what i told you to check !
You will need ndiswrapper, and windows driver (probably)....
There have been a lot of thread about this. And i'm pretty sure it's kind of straigh foward.
There is a howto on the forum... just check for it..
